Although most countries celebrate their New Year in late January or early February, China celebrates its New Year on the second full moon of February, which ushers in the arrival of spring. The Chinese or Lunar New Year is celebrated on the first day of the first lunar month of the Gregorian calendar, often known as the “Spring Festival.”
Can you tell me what the Year of the Ox is?
Each of the twelve zodiac signs in China corresponds to one of twelve different animals. One animal and its defining characteristics are selected annually and applied to the calendar year. In addition, 2021 is the Year of the Ox, which is associated with steadiness and peace. The coming year is expected to be filled with success and riches.
Why is it important this year?
When the Year of the Ox arrives in 2020, it will replace the turbulent Year of the Rat. Countless lives were lost and economies were shattered as a result of the global spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, this year’s Ox is expected to bring some welcome consistency.
What caused it to explode in popularity on the internet?
Facebook and Instagram are among the social media that are celebrating the Chinese New Year. Both services have developed tools for users to participate in digital events, from stickers to augmented reality effects and filters.
In honor of the event, Instagram has launched a new story feature that simply collects people’s celebrations from all over the world. To join in the narrative, simply include one of the Year of the Ox stickers in your work.

Moreover, in honor of the event, the platforms have introduced new augmented reality (AR) effects and filters that users can apply to their stories. Up until February 17th, the platform will have the new features available.
As the Covidien-19 pandemic continues to limit movement, the new capabilities have quickly gained traction on social media. By the way, Facebook and its services are blocked in China.
