Observed by 20% of the world’s population, the Lunar New Year is one of the largest celebrations on Earth. With the world saying goodbye to the Year of the Cock, (we know damn well ain’t no gay men doin’ that!) it welcomes in the Year of the Dog.
In Chinese astrology, people born in the Year of the Dog are thought to be loyal, social, courageous, lively, and smart, much like the family pet; and they bring a harmonious dynamic to the people in their lives.
From The Telegraph, “Dogs symbolize luck to the Chinese: if a stray dog approaches a house, it is said to show the fortune is coming to the family. The animal is incredibly loyal to its owner, whether or not the owner is wealthy. “
Other dog years include: 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
