In general, Roosters are active, amusing, outspoken, talkative and charming. The Chinese Lunar New Year will begin on 28 January 2017 (Saturday). On the eve of this festive season, the Chinese typically gather together with their family members for a reunion dinner. They will also clean up their houses as they believe that symbolises sweeping away the bad fortune and welcoming the New Year.
