Gung Hay Fat Choi! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Welcome to the Year of the Sheep. Or is it the Year of the Goat?
Whatever the English translation is, the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year, begins on February 19, according to the Gregorian Calendar in 2015.
Different translations from Mandarin render it the Year of the Sheep, Goat or Ram. “Year of the Horned Ruminant” doesn’t have a nice ring to it.
Millions of Canadians, particularly those of Chinese heritage, and people all over the world will bring in the New Year. People of diverse religious, ethnic and political backgrounds come together to celebrate the common bonds of Chinese culture.
