Gung Hay Fat Choy: The Lunar New Year

by Author

The Chinese zodiac assigns an animal for every year, cycling through 12 animals, one per year. Your birth animal has strong meaning and is often linked to your personality and overall character. Those born in 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, and 1958 etc. are also Dogs so this might apply to you! The eleventh of all twelve Asian zodiac animals; Dogs are often serious creatures and communicative individuals that exhibit qualities of honesty and loyalty. Predominantly defined by their loyalty, those that are represented by the year of the Dog are most compatible with the Rabbit, Tiger and Horse zodiacs, so keep that in mind when picking your special Valentine’s date!
