On This Day: The Year of the Goat Begins

Today is the Chinese New Year. The Year of the Goat begins today.

Lucky numbers for the goat/sheep are two and seven. Its lucky colors are brown, red, and purple.  

The Chinese zodiac has 12 signs. They are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Remember if you gave birth this year before today, then your child was born under the Horse. The Year of the Goat will run through 7 February 2016, as the Year of the Monkey begins on 8 February 2016.

 

On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events.
