Festivities begin the night before and continue for fifteen days! This year Chinese New Year starts on 28 January and will commence the zodiac year of the Rooster will begin. In the Chinese Zodiac, every year is represented by one of twelve zodiac animals, past years of the Rooster were in 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, and 2005. Those born in these years are also known as roosters and are believed to display certain traits, such being as active, amusing, loyal, talkative, and charming.
It is a tradition for Red Envelopes to be given out on Chinese New Year, other holidays and special events throughout China. These envelopes usually contain a monetary gift, but their significance goes beyond what’s inside the colour red, which is used throughout many decorations, clothing and symbols on Chinese New Year, signifies good luck and was believed to ward off evil spirits for the upcoming year. This year, in celebration of Chinese New Year, Chopstix will be giving away red envelopes as a sign of good fortune and prosperity!
