2022 - The year of the Golden Tiger

2022, 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962, 1950

01 February

The Tiger is the third of all zodiac animals. According to a myth, the Jade Emperor said that the order would be determined by the order in which they would arrive at his feast.
The Buffalo had left the night before and was going to be first. Tiger would arrive early the next morning and finish second. But… the Rat had secretly climbed Buffalo and jumped down first when he saw the Jade Emperor.
As a result, the Buffalo and Tiger came in second and third place. Despite his protests, the Tiger had to settle for third place in the zodiac.

In Chinese culture, tigers are seen as guardians of children. Babies and babies wear tiger-patterned shoes and hats to protect against evil spirits.

Full of life, those born under this sign are fearless, noble and bursting with vigour. They are affectionate, generous and have a great empathy for fellow human beings. Their rebellious nature attracts them to adventure and deeds that call for action instead of deliberation. Optimistic, tigers have a great lot of spunk and would rather die trying than give up on their ideals. But beware; tigers are loners who don’t care much for company in their quests. Though spunky, they are essentially big babies who need their egos stroked often, and boy do they have huge ones! They are high-strung and easily tense up over trivial matters, allowing jealousy and possessiveness to get into the way of better judgement. Reckless, irreverent and rebellious, tigers think rules are created only to be broken.

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
