Happy Chinese New Year from the BumbleBar Team!
Do you celebrate the Chinese New Year? If so, we would love to know how! Share your stories in the comments below!
Many people across the globe will begin the New Year festivities on January 27th. Chinese New Year normally falls between January 21 and February 20. We will be saying goodbye to the year of the Monkey and saying hello to the year of the Rooster; in particular, the Fire Rooster.
For those of us who don’t know what this means…
We did some research on China Highlights and this is what we learned:
In Chinese astrology, each zodiac year is not just associated with an animal sign, but also one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, or Earth. Both the zodiac sign and the element shape the astrology of the year. For example, 2017 is a Fire Rooster year. Element-sign combinations start over every 60 years.
The following famous fire Roosters will be 60 this zodiac year: Dawn French, Donny Osmond, Martin Luther King III, Stephen Fry, Hans Zimmer, Dolph Lundgren, and Jools Holland.
Both zodiac sign and element are believed to affect one’s personality and destiny. Below are the five types of Roosters:
1. Wood Rooster – Born in 1945, 2005 – These people tend to be energetic, overconfident, tender, and unstable.
2. Fire Rooster – Born in 1957, 2017 – Trustworthy, with a strong sense of timekeeping and responsibility at work.
3. Earth Rooster – Born in 1909, 1969 – Lovely, generous, trustworthy, and popular amongst their friends.
4. Gold Rooster – Born in 1921, 1981 – Determined, brave, perseverant, and hardworking.
5. Water Rooster – Born in 1933, 1993 – Smart, quick-witted, tenderhearted, and compassionate
