Chinese New Year 2012 is the biggest and longest festival of the Chinese community. Chinese New Year 2012 begins on 23rd January, 2012. In China, people take weeks of holidays so as to prepare for the festival and go on holidays. There are several beautiful rituals which are followed during this whole period. There goes a very beautiful legend behind Chinese New Year 2012 celebrations. In the ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on the Chinese New Year.Twelve animals came and Buddha named a year after each one and he announced that the people who’d be born in the respective months would have similar personality traits like that animal. As 2012 is the year of dragon, so people born in 2012 would be brave, innovative, passionate, leaders.
Fireworks are a must, decoration with poems on a red paper, giving children money in red envelopes is a wonderful tradition which they follow to bring prosperity and luck.
