The Chinese New Year will be breathing fire on January 23rd, as is it is the "Year of the Dragon." According to beliefs, dragon years are all about exploring new frontiers and the 23rd is the start of 15 days of celebration.  

According to Chinese legend, each year is dedicated one specific animal out of twelve. According to folklore, all the animals were requested to meet with Buddha on the New Year, and only twelve showed up.  Each year then was named after the types of animals that arrived. However, people born in their designated animal year are said to bestow the characteristics of that creature.

Ring in the Lunar New Year with dazzling floats, marching bands, Chinese acrobats, and of course, huge dragons meandering about in celebrations taking place all over the US. The lantern festival is held on the last day with people hanging their own lanterns in a temple to be blessed, and then stroll with them in an evening procession.

There is one color that is predominant during Chinese New Year´s over all others and that color of choice is red. The ancient fable states that red symbolizes fire, and therefore its presence will drive away bad luck for the “new” year as well as frightening away evil spirits.  

It is customary for participants don this color in their clothing, gift wrapping and decorations.
