The Chinese New Year has just begun and there are two weeks of partying ahead of us. 2018 marks The Year of the Dog according to the Chinese zodiac. Dogs are the symbol of loyalty and honesty, man’s best friend.
People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They are honest, friendly, faithful, loyal, smart and have a strong sense of responsibility. (My dog sees her “strong sense of responsibility” as cuddling every guest who sleeps over.)
It’s a full two weeks of celebrations full of bell ringing, lighting firecrackers, dancing and red envelopes stuffed with “lucky money” and positive wishes. And in this new digital age, the Chinese even have red envelope apps – so their relatives can transfer cash digitally. You’ve got to love it!
There are many fun facts about the Chinese zodiac and the Year of the ZDog. Guess which famous celebrities were born in the year of the dog. And look at the celebrations thrown in London for this holiday. It’s party time – go enjoy yourself and give your furry friend a big hug because it’s THEIR year.
