Chinese New Year 2023 – Year of the Rabbit

year of the rabbit

Chinese New Year begins on January 22 this year and ends on February 9, 2024 (Chinese New Year’s Eve). This begins the year of the Water Rabbit, a sign of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture. This year is predicted to be a year of hope. People born during the Year of the Rabbit are said to be vigilant, witty, quick-minded, and ingenious. The Rabbit is the fourth sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle and repeats every 12 years. Those born this year, along with those born in 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939, and 1927 are Rabbits.

If you’re planning to celebrate Chinese New Year this year, here’s a free card for you:

Crochet was popularized in Ireland and England in the late 19th century. Some researchers believe it was derived from the Chinese art of tambour in which fabric is stretched over a frame, and a hook is used to pull thread and beads through the fabric.

Amigurumi is a combination of two Japanese words “ami” meaning knitted or crocheted and “nuigurumi” which means stuffed creature. This art form gained popularity in Japan after World War II. However, it is also believed to have originated in China because of records found in the Shang Dynasty about knitted and crocheted dolls. Early examples of crocheted and knitted dolls were first found in Japan during the 17th century (the Edo period) because of trade between the Dutch and Japanese people and the interaction between China and Japan during that time.
