There are reasons why certain foods are served for the new year. Dumplings are round and mean a circle of wealth, the lettuce rolls represent prosperity and fish is associated with abundance and pork is thought to bring bounty and family unity.

This is the Year of the Sheep and if you were born during any of these years, it is your symbol -- 1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015.

Characteristics of people born in the year of Sheep are tender, polite, clever and kind-hearted. They have special sensitivity to art and beauty, faith in a certain religion and a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, gentle and compassionate and can cope with business cautiously and circumspectly. In their daily life, they try to be economical. Women born in this year are willing to take good care of others, but they should avoid pessimism and hesitation. They are kind in heart and commonly have symmetrical figures and features.
