Today is New Year. This year is the lunar new year of the ox. I love learning about other cultures so I did some research to find out what the ox symbolizes. Here are some random facts I found interesting about the New Year of the Ox:
- The two main characteristics of the animal are strength and determination, which seem pretty apt for this year. We all need more strength after 2020!
- There are many famous people who are ox, from Princess Diana and Barack Obama to Kylie Jenner and Kate Moss.
- Ox years are particularly good for marriage. So if you are in a relationship that is on your way to change, this might be your year to get this ring!
How do you celebrate the Lunar New Year? There are great articles out there on the best ways to celebrate the Lunar New Year (I think Oprah Mag did a great job breaking the lunar New Year traditions). As for me? I’ll have dumplings and wear red. It’s China’s lucky color, and regardless of our nationality, we could all use a little more luck this year.
Here are some red outfit ideas to get you inspired … and Happy Lunar New Year to everyone who celebrates!
