Lunar New Year is a cultural and religious celebration for many Chinese, Koreans and
Vietnamese. This is the year of the Dog. People born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994 and 2006
were also born in the year of the “Dog”.
Many rituals are associated with this festive occasion. They include cleaning house, paying off
debts, settling old arguments, and other means of making a "fresh start."
