2030 - The year of the Dog

2030, 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970, 1958

3rd of February

The dog is the eleventh of all zodiac animals. According to a myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be determined by the order in which they arrived at his feast. Monkey, Rooster and Dog were in another land helping a god to defeat evil spirits. Then they left for the party together. Since they arrived at the same time, the Jade Emperor followed the order in which they met the god in the other land. So Dog finished eleventh.

In China, it is still popular to call dogs Wàng Cái. It means "prosperous wealth" and comes from the barking sounds of dogs (wàng wàng).

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
