The year of 2018 is predicted by the Chinese to be a good year. It will be busy, exciting, and for some it will be a year to watch your health and finances.
This prediction is based on Chinese astrology. The Chinese match each zodiac year with an animal (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) and also one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. This year is the element Earth so it is named the Chinese Year of the Earth Dog.
Chinese New Year is celebrated on February 16 and the Lunar Year of the Dog begins.
There will be lots to see and do for young and old. Car enthusiasts can check out the Sports Car Show while shoppers can browse through the interesting market stalls. Hungry tummies won't be able to resist the enticing aromas of the Chinese food stalls, rich with flavours and colour. Bring a healthy appetite!
