2022 is the year of the Tiger. Because Chinese Zodiac signs are calculated according to the lunar calendar, to be precise, the Year of Tiger starts from February 1, 2022, that is, the Spring Festival.
In ancient China, people used the combination of heavenly stems and earthly branches to remember the year they were born. In order to facilitate memory and calculations, people used twelve animals, Rat, Ox, Tiger etc. according to the twelve earthly branches. An animal comes as the Zodiac sign of the year. What year it was in lunar calendar when a person was born, the animal became his Zodiac. As the cycle of the 12 Zodiac signs rotates, every time you meet your Zodiac, the year is called your year of fate. In other words, every 12 years, people will encounter their year of fate.
In the traditional customs of Chinese, year of fate is often regarded as an inauspicious year. In every year of fate, whether you are an adult or a child, you should wear a red belt, Children also need to wear red vests and red underwear as to avoid evil and bad luck.
