Chinese New Year Chinese New Year Presentation Transcript

  • China Week 2014 Xīn Nián Kuài Lè (zeen neean kwai luh) 新 年 快 乐 http://mandarin.about.com/library/audio/newyear/6.mp3 Year of the Horse 31.1.14
  • Year of the Horse • The traditional Chinese calendar is calculated using the moon – it’s called a lunar calendar – and this means that its festivals and holidays fall on different days each year. • Last year, Chinese New Year was on 10th February, and next year it will be on 19th February. • Each year is also named after one of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. They are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig, and they are always in that order, so in 12 years’ time it will be the Year of the Horse again.
