Happy New Year!

China celebrates the new year January 28th this year and traditionally the Chinese use at least three days to celebrate.  Some celebrate for nearly 3 weeks.  Many Chinese believe in Astrology and assign an animal to the year.  2017 is the year of the Rooster.

China produces about 90% of the world’s fireworks so you can bet there will be some big displays in celebration of the start of the Year of the Rooster!
