The 2018 Chinese New Year Day is on Friday, February 16, 2018.
2018 is the Year of the Brown Dog.
China will be 4715 years old.
The first day of the Brown Dog is not the Chinese New Year in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2018 Chinese Brown Dog starts on February 4, 2018 in China’s time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of Brown Dog Year. If a baby is born February 5, 2018, then baby’s zodiac sign is the Dog, not Chicken.
