Chinese New Year 2015

2015 Year of the Ram

The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival is a popular annual tradition in the Chinese culture. This tradition is also celebrated in Malta, where Chinese communities welcome the New Year with their own celebrations. As the Grand Hotel Excelsior Malta represents cultural diversity, one of the dates on our calendar is the Chinese New Year.

2015 – The Year of the Ram
The New Chinese Year will begin on Thursday 19th February 2015 and symbolizes the Year of the Ram, an inspiring period. It is said to believe that the year will try to leave behind any unstable affair and connections with the aim to carve a new more honest pattern of relations.

Ram Personality
People born in the year of the goat are considerate creatures. They think before acting and try not to hurt somebody else’s feelings. This characteristic helps them maintain a healthy social life and also enables them to deal with life’s ups and downs. These people are very romantic and sensitive; however they also need to feel secure in love. Some people may treat their absent-mindedness as thoughtlessness, but it is not in their nature to upset other people intentionally.

On the down side these people sometimes require too much attention and impose too much on their close ones. They can also be too sensitive for the real life situations, insecure and feel the need to be loved and protected. Moreover, they can easily be drawn into complex predicaments but usually don’t like to face the confrontation and tend to pull back when faced with heavy decision-making and blatantly refuse to take an unpopular stand in a conflict.

If you would like to experience the Chinese New Year and be part of the celebrations, join us at the Grand Hotel Excelsior for Our Chinese New Year’s Eve Celebration Dinner on Wednesday 18th February 2015.
