This Saturday, February 24th, let’s bid farewell to the Rooster and welcome the year of the Dog. The 2018 Chinese New Year – the Year of the Dog – officially began on Friday, February 16. Chinese New Year takes place on a different date each year because it is based on the lunar calendar and celebrations normally last around 2 weeks!
The Chinese animal zodiac or sheng xiao, which means ‘born resembling’, are arranged in a repeating cycle of 12 years. The animal changes at the beginning of the Chinese New Year, and traditionally these animals were used to date the years. The year of the Dog corresponds to the element of earth. This colorful event will include the traditional “Dance of the Dragons” by the members of the Chinese community in La Romana – a spectacular parade of dragons will dance to the beat of drums around Chinois restaurant!
This is also a fantastic opportunity as well to enjoy Chinois delicious food! Find below our coverage of last year’s celebrations and call ahead to make your reservations. Don’t miss it!
