HOLOGRAFYX welcomes Chinese New Year, the year of the Rooster that begins on Saturday January 28. The new year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year.
What is “Spring Festival”?
The Spring Festival is the most important festival for Chinese people and is common for family members get together, just like Christmas in the West. All people living away from home go back and spend holidays with their family.
The Spring Festival falls on the first day of the first lunar month, often one month later than the Gregorian calendar. This is the reason why the Spring Festival is called Chinese New Year. Each Chinese New Year is characterized by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month. People born in the Year of the Rooster are characterized as honest, energetic, intelligent, flexible, and confident.
Holografyx is proud to be based in Victoria, where the oldest Chinatown in Canada is located. It’s also the second oldest Chinatown in North America after San Francisco’s.
Holografyx wishes the Chinese community good fortune and success to all families and businesses.
