2014 The Year of the Horse!

On Friday January 31st the Chinese New Year began. In Chinese culture, every year is symbolised by a different animal which is said to represent the personality traits of those born during that year.

This year will be the Year of the Horse which translates as a year for action! Previous years have been the year of the snake in 2013 and the year of the dragon in 2012.

Twelve animals form the twelve year cycle of the Chinese zodiac which includes the year of the rat, tiger and rabbit.

Those born during the year of the horse which also fell in 2002, 1990 and 1978, are believed to be active and highly energetic, quick witted and born to travel.

The Chinese New Year is the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar, it symbolises the start of new life and a time to make resolutions for the year ahead. You can buy your very own Horse Head cufflinks for the year of the horse here
