Celebrating Lunar New Year with Breakfast Television!

Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year is celebrated by more than 20% of the world! In China, you’ll hear it being called chunjie (春节), or the Spring Festival. Chinese New Year is an opportunity to celebrate spring and mark the end of the coldest days.

The celebration begins on the first full moon of the Lunar calendar and ends 15 days later. The origins of the holiday are thousands of years old and have hundreds of legends relating to the celebration and festivities. According to the 2020 Chinese horoscope, the Lunar New Year starts on Saturday, January 25th and ends on February 11th, 2021.

2020 marks the year of The Rat! The Rat is the first sign from the 12 animals cycle of the Chinese Astrology, and for this reason, 2020 is considered a year of new beginnings and renewals. The Metal Rat Year is going to be a strong, prosperous, and lucky year for almost all Chinese zodiac signs. The Year of the Boar (2019) was thus fundamentally about completion, self-care and balance, while the Year of the Rat (2020) is expected to be more about progression and starting a new project with great energy, astrologers say.

Those who fall under the year of the rat are born in the below years:

1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020, 2032.

What characteristics make up a rat?

Rats are clever, quick thinkers, successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life! Rats are considered hardworking, resourceful and incredibly thrifty.
