Six Chinese Celebrations for the Year of the Rooster

JANUARY 27, 2017

According to Chinese astrology, 2016 was the year of the monkey. One of 12 animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac, monkey years are believed to shake things up, just like the cleverly mischievous and naughty critter that they are named after. But good news lies ahead. January 28 marks Chinese New Year as well as the year of the proud and punctual rooster. Many say it will bring stability to whatever raucous was stirred by its monkey predecessor. Whether you are a believer or a Zodiac cynic, the week-long public holiday remains China’s most important social and economic holiday. The following are among Robb Report’s favorite celebrations.
