When is The Chinese New Year?

Chinese New Year is on Tuesday, February 1st


According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger


What does the Tiger mean?


The Chinese Zodiac dates back to the Qin Dynasty over 2000 years ago and is rooted in a system of zoolatry (or animal worship). As the legend goes, the Jade Emperor challenged all the animals in the Kingdom to a “Great Race.” Whoever arrived at his palace first would win his favor. The Tiger was sure that he had the race in the bag but ended up placing third after the cunning Rat and workhorse Ox snuck in ahead of him.


Tigers are extremely competitive people, known for their courage and ambition. Tigers are ambitious, but they’re also extremely generous with a drive to help others. Tigers want to win but they’re also always seeking justice.



Was I born during the Year of the Tiger?


If you were born in 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 or 2010, you were born during the Year of the Tiger.



So what’s in store for the Year of the Tiger?


The Year of the Rat (2020) was about survival.


The Year of the Ox (2021) was about anchoring ourselves in a new reality.


The Year of the Tiger (2022) will be about making big changes.

This will be a year of risk-taking and adventure.

We’re finding enthusiasm again, both for ourselves and for others.

Everyone is fired up; generosity is at an all-time high and social progress feels possible again.
