FACT:  Did you know that the last time in the Chinese Calendar the combination of the element FIRE and the animal ROOSTER was in 1957?  It is a fact that, such combinations reoccur only every 60 years!   This is because there are 12 animals in the Chinese calendar counting system:  Rat, Cow, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.  To make the 60 unique color animal names, the Chinese have also added the Five Elements: Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth and these Five Elements are connected to colors:  White, Black, Green, Red and Brown. Hence, this is why each Chinese year has a color animal name.  Because Red is connected to Fire, 2017 is also called the Red Rooster Year (some Chinese Stem system say that 2017 is a female year so actually 2017 is probably the year of the red chicken year for the strict astrologers).  The Chinese new year will begin on January 28, 2017 - February 15, 2018 to be followed by the Brown Earth Dog Year next.
