In China, the horse is a heroic icon due its involvement in many important battles won, while showcasing power and strength. According to Chinese astrology, those born in Horse year (the seventh earthly branch) are often animated, energetic and love being in a crowd. Additionally, they have an optimistic and straightforward perception towards life, are great communicators and quite witty.

While the astrological characteristics may or may not ring true to you personally, Chinese New Year is a time of celebration with family and friends, and a celebration of cultural identity.


The beautifully designed greeting cards above are from associates in the VOA China studio.
