Happy New Lunar Year 恭喜发财 🧧🎉🎊 It’s the year of the water tiger. Did you know that this holiday is celebrated by almost two billion people across the world? Also known as Chinese New Year and Spring Festival. The Holiday is celebrated in multiple countries in east Asia and filled with rich culture. The tradition centers around the hope for good fortune and prosperity. Something we all need atm.
The Lunar New Year falls on a different date each year, but the celebration typically lasts 16 consecutive days. This year, it starts on Lunar New Year’s Eve, which is today, and will be ending on February 15, 2022.
Lunar New Year is annually linked to one of 12 zodiac animals – each possessing their own character traits. The animals are assigned based on a 12-year cycle, making 2022 the Year of the Tiger. They are considered the king of the beasts. And tend to be powerful, rebellious, dynamic, adventurous, fiery, impulsive and unpredictable. Tigers also typically have strong ethics, so they’re very passionate about causes.
Tiger years have the potential to be explosive, but because 2022 is the Year of the Water Tiger — referring to the five elements (fire, earth, metal, water and wood) that rotate alongside the animal signs — the Tiger may be less aggressive and more open minded. Becoming less explosive and more open to change.
