ORLANDO, FL -- Chinese New Year is the most important of all traditional Chinese holidays. It is often called the Lunar New Year because it is determined by the lunar calendar and falls anywhere between late January and mid February.

This year, it falls on January 31, 2014.

The origins of this holiday date back to 2600 B.C. when the Emperor Huang Ti introduced the first cycle of the Chinese zodiac based on ancient legend.

When Lord Buddha summoned all animals to bid him farewell before he departed the Earth, only twelve animals came.

 As a reward, he named a year after each one and proclaimed that people born in each animals' year would possess some of that animals personality.

 2014 is the Year of the Horse,and is considered a fortunate year that brings luck and opportunities according to the Chinese Zodiac.

 Horses are bright, cheerful, energetic, popular, independent, and fun loving. Horses have a carefree nature and need ample room for self expression.

 People born in Horse years (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002) find people and crowds exciting and love parties, and there keen judgment and natural intuition often help them make the right decisions throughout their life.
