Our friends from Expats Paris have put together what is going to be the coolest Chinese New Year Party in Paris.
Just to let you know a little bit better about what will be about:
The Year 2014 is the 4711th Chinese year. The Chinese believe that the first king of China was the Yellow King (he was not the first emperor of China). The Yellow King became king in 2697 B.C., therefore China will enter the 4711th year on January 31, 2014. Also, the Chinese Year uses the cycle of 60 Stem-Branch counting systems and the Green Wood Horse is the 31st Stem-Branch in the cycle. Since (60 *78) + 31 = 4711, therefore 2014 is the Green Wooden Horse Year, which is the 4711th Chinese Year.
If you like the Chinese culture like we do and you are curious about this cool event, check the rest of the info HERE.
Be quick and get your place at the party because it will be a huge success!
