Chinese New Year
It’s almost time for the beginning of another Chinese New Year and this time it’s the year of the goat! On Thursday 19th February a new moon in the sky will represent the start of another Chinese New Year and the famous colourful celebrations will undoubtedly commence.
The Chinese Zodiac is based on a repeating twelve year cycle with each year represented by an animal that either has a lucky meaning or was closely related to the daily lives of ancient Chinese people. The following order is that of the twelve symbolic Chinese New Year animals; Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.
We’d all like a prosperous, auspicious and successful year to look forward to. Well, if you were born in the year of the goat then this is exactly what lies ahead for you. People supposedly share the same characteristic traits as those attributed to the animal of the year they were born.
So, if you were born in the year of the goat you are likely to be elegant, kind, creative, good-natured and artistic. You have a strong inner resilience, have a good relationship with your family and prefer to work as part of a team than by yourself. Each animal has lucky numbers associated with it too and in this case the goat’s lucky numbers are 2, 7 or any number containing either of these.
When it comes to Chinese New Year, cooking up some sizzling food is the perfect way to celebrate and at Palmers we’ve got some great new products, from woks to bamboo steamers, to help you do just that. Choose your favourite product and celebrate in style!comments powered by Disqus
