Chinese New Year
Start Date: 1/31/2014
End Date: 1/31/2014

Event Description
Jan. 31 is the beginning of 4712 on the Chinese calendar.  New Year festivities begin on the first day of the Chinese month, when the moon is darkest, and continue through the fifteenth, when the moon is the brightest.    

Legend says that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on the New Year.  Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each of them, announcing that people born in each animal's year would have some of the animal's personality.  4712 is a year of the horse. Those born in horse years tend to be energetic, independent, impatient, and enjoy traveling.
