Happy New Year!
We wish all our Chinese friends and clients a prosperous, healthy, joyful New Year!
This, the 4714th Chinese New Year, 2017, is the year of the red fire rooster. In the interests of full disclosure, this is my year and it explains why red has always been my favorite colour. The Chinese believe that having red as part of your home decor brings in energy and in the west we refer to red being the power color. Both work for us!
According to Chinese astrologists, this will be a year to celebrate progress, honour & maximum integrity - a year of fortune when people learn to temper their ardour. The Year of the Fire Rooster begins, tomorrow, January 28 - the second new moon after Solstice.
Chinese astrology is considered to be the most ancient system in the world, believed to be over 5000 years old. While western astrology depends on the 12 months of the year, Chinese astrology is based upon a 12 year lunar cycle. Here in Vancouver, we are privileged to be able to celebrate both Chinese and western New Year with huge celebrations for both.
Have a wonderful weekend enjoying the parades, parties, family gatherings and all that fabulous food! And remember, whatever the date, we have you covered.
See you in the New Year - Sheila and Michelle.
