January 28th, 2017 sees the start of the Lunar Year of the Rooster which has been commemorated since 2600BC and it’s based on the cycles of the moon.
The rooster is the dawn announcer waking people up on time in the morning. Since the ancient times, it has actually been believed to have the ability to divine the future. Also in Greek folklore, it is stated that the rooster can feel what will occur in the future. So, it is considered as the god’s ambassador. The people born in the year of the rooster likewise have the capability to determine what is coming.
The original shape of the coin is what gives its unique appeal as it has been produced in the shape of a Chinese lock beauty. This type of charm is based upon the traditional Chinese gadget used to secure ownerships and home and its main purpose is to protect an individual from wicked and to bring all the best, fortune, official rank and long life.
The Chinese New Year can fall anywhere in between late January and the middle of February where these lock charms are normally gifted to family members and loved ones, put under pillows at the time of the Lunar New Year.
