Chinese New Year

Gong Hey Fat Choy!

(That means happy new year in Cantonese - one of China's main languages)

Today marks Chinese new year and is the first day of the year of the monkey. In Chinese tradition, each year is represented by an animal - this comes form the story of the great race (watch the video below to hear that story). Legend says that the animal whose year you were born in says a lot about your personality. I was born in the year of the tiger which means I'm brave & strong - super accurate. Below the video is a chart to help you find out which year you were born in. Do you think your animal represents you well?
