Google Doodle celebrates Lunar New Year 2015

GOOGLE has marked Lunar New Year with a Doodle on its homepage.

The animation shows a ram head-butting a tree until a bee flies out – causing firecrackers to go off and a series of fireworks to spell out “Google“.

This refers to the Chinese celebration of Lunar New Year, which marks today as the beginning of the Year of the Ram.

Chinese New Year is not only celebrated in China. 

It is also observed in countries with significant Chinese populations, such as Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

There is some confusion over whether 2015 is in fact the Year of the Ram, or whether it is actually dedicated to the sheep or the goat.

This is because in Mandaring ‘yang’, meaning ‘horned animal’, covers all three – so nobody is sure which one it really is.

In Chinese culture the color red is considered lucky.

So the Lunar New Year is celebrated by decorating windows and doors with red colored Chinese paper cuttings, as well as couplets with themes of ‘good fortune’, ‘happiness’, ‘wealth’ or ‘longevity’.
