Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calender. The Chinese year 4713 begins on Feb. 19, 2015. Legend tells, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality.
This year it is the year of the sheep, goat or ram. Those born in sheep (goat/ram) years are often artistic, charming, sensitive, and sweet. It is known as the most creative sign in the Chinese zodiac. Read more on http://www.infoplease.com
