Chinese New Year: Year of the Rooster

Shane Elcock - Uncategorized

Chinese New Year

  It’s almost Chinese New Year! The Chinese New Year falls on the 28th January as they follow the Lunar Calendar, and this year this means that processions will start on the 27th January and will likely last around two weeks. During this time, people tend to give each other gifts and visit family, before planning to see what the Rooster means for the year ahead.

The Year of the Rooster

Whilst for many it may be a time of great celebration, for those born in a Rooster year (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005), it is often said to be an unlucky time. Roosters are the tenth sign in the zodiac and are seen as confident, honest and hardworking. They also enjoy being around people but can be seen as attention seekers.

What’s on in London

For those visiting London, it is recommended that during this time the places to visit are Trafalgar Square, the West End, and Chinatown for the majority of celebrations. A large parade shall be held on the 27-28th January in Trafalgar Square as the main celebration, but other smaller ones will still follow.
