It’s Chinese New Year on Sunday and we’re pleased to announce that there is a new ecard on the Katie’s Cards website just in time for the celebrations.

What does your Chinese Zodiac sign say about you?

Friday, February 8th, 2013

There are twelve different animals which represent the Chinese Zodiac, which correspond with years rather than months. We’re about to enter the Year of the Snake and, according to one website, people born in the Year of the Snake are wise and logical but are sometimes egotistical.

So what does the year you were born in say about you? Perhaps you’re an ambitious, hard-working rat. Maybe you’re an affectionate rabbit, or even a confident dragon? You can find out about the characteristics of your Chinese Zodiac sign here, it’s a fun way of learning more about this vibrant festival and maybe even about yourself…

Now that you know your sign, why not encourage your friends to find out theirs? You can send a personal Chinese New Year message by visiting the Katie’s Cards website and choosing one of our beautifully designed festive Chinese New Year ecards.

Three images which epitomise Chinese New Year

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

To me, ‘Chinese New Year‘ evokes so many different images: vivid colours, dancing dragons, noisy street celebrations and a rich assault on the senses. With the festival fast-approaching, Pinterest is brimming with pictures that evoke the vibrant nature and richness of these celebrations and so I’ve picked three of my favourite images which I think portray the Chinese New Year festivities.

The Dragon Dance

The Dragon Dance is a central part of the Chinese New Year celebrations. Dragons are considered to bring good luck and the dance is meant to show the power and dignity of the creature.

Chinese New Year is approaching…

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

It’s only a few days until the vibrant festival of Chinese New Year. In China, fireworks and glowing red lanterns will no doubt be filling the skies as families gather together for the celebratory reunion dinner and the giving of red envelopes.

Yet the celebrations will not be confined to China, many cities around the world will be holding parades, ‘dragon dances’ and food festivals so why not investigate events taking place in a city near you?

If you can’t celebrate with family and friends this year, you can pre-schedule the sending of your Chinese New Year ecards now so you can rest assured that your loved ones in all corners of the world will receive their New Year’s wishes on time.
