Chinese New Year 2018 - Importance to our community
Posted on 15 February 2018
This year we celebrate Chinese New Year on Friday 16th February and even though it is not a public holiday in Australia it is still widely celebrated. The celebrations last 15 days and it is a fun filled time of festive celebrations across the different communities here in Perth.
For those who do not know a lot about the Chinese New Year, now is a great time to start. Each new year corresponds to one of the 12 different animals from the Chinese Zodiac. 2018 is the Year of the Dog so for those born in 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006 are under the dog zodiac.
Men born in a Dog year are believed to be straightforward and genuine whilst women are believed to be cautious and indifferent to people they don’t like.
What Zodiac animal are you?
Thinking about love? Especially with Valentine’s Day in the same week why not carry out a compatibility test based around the animals of the Chinese zodiac?? Check out this link to try it out!
Chinese New Year is very important in Australia as there is such a long history of Chinese immigration to Australia. No matter your cultural heritage, the traditional foods stalls and parades offer a chance to learn more about a culture that forms a vibrant part of Australia.
So what is happening for those local to Perth? Here is a great post from Urban List to check out. Without a doubt Northbridge is definitely the centre of attention for most of the celebrations and we definitely won’t be missing the Fair on the 18th February in Northbridge. It is on all day… so I definitely will be popping down after a day of lovely appointments with my brides.
Hope you enjoy the festivities.
