The New Year Approaches….


2014-Year-of-horse-4  The Lunar New Year Celebration at Sandwich High this Saturday from 1:00-3:00 pm. This is one of my favorite events hosted by the Library, and the teens who are the Chinese Folk Art Workshop of Boston are as inspirational and impressive as ever.

The Year 2014 is considered as the Year of the Horse which begins on January 31, 2014 and ends on February 18, 2015. It is the Year of Wood Horse.  Wood is related to tree or green, so it is also called Year of Green Horse. 2014 is the jiăwŭ (甲午) year. The Chinese zodiac calendar comprises 12 animal signs and horse is the seventh among all of them. In Chinese culture, the Horse is a symbol of nobility, class, speed and perseverance.  People born in the Year of the Horse are smart, fabulous speakers who have a gift for getting through to other people. People bearing the horse sign strive towards seeking freedom and happiness. In general, 2014 would be a better year for those people who were born under The Year of the Horse.
