We just celebrated one New Year’s Day; why not celebrate another? The Chinese New year. 2018 is the year of the dog. So buy some custom pet apparel and a custom t-shirt to match and celebrate the New Year. Or better yet, get t-shirts that match your sign. 


The personality traits of the dog are smart, agile, warm hearted, and kind. They also have a straightforward approach in life. Anyone born in the years of 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1984, 1994, 2006, 2018, and it’s not going to happen again until the year 2030. So let’s celebrate now! The Chinese celebrate by giving their children red envelops with lucky money in them. They also have family reunion suppers. Everyone stays up late on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day they set off fireworks and make sacrifices to their ancestors. Then, there is a festival of lights where they have parades in tradition attire. Now, what’s also interesting is it is celebrated in 16 days. Most people return to work on the 8th day after the New Year. It ends with the light festival. 


Celebrating events from other cultures is a great way to learn more about the world and experience other cultures. If you are of Chinese descent, this can be a great way to get in touch with your roots. If you hail from China, bring a piece of home to you here and celebrate your holiday. 


If you were born in 1984, 1994, or 2006, you can celebrate the Year of the Dog all through 2018. After all, you only get the chance once every twelve years. You can dust off your shirt and wear it again throughout 2030. Just make sure to lay off the New Years treats between now and then… If you have a child this year, you can design a custom t-shirt online for them celebrating the Year of the Dog and put it away for them in 2030. Imagine…your little bundle of joy will be on the cusp of their teenage years by the next Year of the Dog. Just make sure to guess a size too big for what you imagine they’ll be at twelve just in case. Better to be baggy than tight. If it misses the mark too much, well, there’s always 2042. 


Oh, we almost forgot the namesake of this zodiac sign. Remember how we mentioned pet apparel? Well, we have t-shirts and hoodies for dogs. Let your furry friend celebrate their year in style!
