The Chinese New Year dates are determined by the lunisolar Chinese calendar. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later.

This year is the year of the pig, and it starts on February 18.

If you were born in 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983 or 1995 - you were born under the sign of the pig. Like the pig, you are highly regarded for your chilvary and pureness of heart, and you often make friends for life. For pigs in 2007, any recent setbacks or obstacles can be overcome so look forward to a year in which to really shine, either personally or professionally.

Famous people born in the Year Of The Pig include Lucille Ball, Humphrey Bogart, Thomas Jefferson, Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchcock, Mahalia Jackson, David Letterman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This box is located at Willowbrook Park, a small area surrounding Willow Brook in the Burlington historic district.
Find the gazebo. Nearby is a magnolia. Walk to this tree, turn away from the gazebo and spot the largest sentinel.
Walk to it, turn away from the brook. 40 paces away is a cluster of bushes surrounded by ivy. Find the multi trunk bush close to a tree and at its base is your treasure.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!
