One of the most important Asian holidays worldwide is the Chinese New Year. This date marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and therefore never coincides with the Gregorian calendar with which we are governed in the West.
In addition to celebrating with parades, fireworks and dancing with dragons, the New Year is represented by the Chinese horoscope animal that corresponds to the lunar cycle.
