The year of the rat
China celebrates the New Year of the Rat on January 25th. The rat is the first animal of all zodiac animals and is therefore also considered the year of the new beginning and the renewal.
The year of the rat is marked by a profitable and happy year. Everyone will show determination about their goals, aspirations and even their hobbies. The Year of the Rat is also a great year for the foundation and development of a special project. Because of their reproductive rate, married couples also pray for children.
In terms of yin and yang (阴阳 —yīn yáng), the rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day. In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus.
Happy New Year China
We congratulate China on its 70th anniversary.
