• CHINESE NEW YEAR ( 春节 ) OF THE Rooster or the Fire Chicken?

    The Chinese Year 4714 begins on 28th January 2017 at 08.07 a.m. in China Standard Time Zone.



2017 Chinese New Year is on January 28, 2017 at China's time zone. This day is the first new moon day of the first Chinese lunar month in the Chinese Lunar Calendar system. The exact new moon time is at 08:07 a.m. on January 28, 2017 in China standard time zone, GMT+8.

2017 is the Chinese 4714th Year. Chinese calendar also uses a cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting system. Since (60 * 78) + 34 = 4714, 2017 is the 34th Stem-Branch in the cycle. Female Fire Chicken is the nickname of 34th Stem-Branch. Therefore, 2017 is the year of Fire Chicken. Because Red is connected to Fire, 2017 is also called Red Chicken Year. Some web sites say 2017 is the year of the Rooster. But the Stem-Branch calendar says it's a female.

Chinese Astrology doesn't simply use the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Chinese Astrology is a theory of Yin and Yang. Yin is the Earth and Yang is the Sun. Therefore, Chinese Astrology also uses the solar calendar. The first day of the astrological year is on February 3, 2017.
