NEXC HOSPITALITY VILLAGE

MATTERS OF THE HEART

The hospitality industry will welcome a very exciting 2007, according to forecasts for this Year of the Red Fire Pig/Boar.
This year will be a year of travel, personally and especially, professionally. As such, tourism, travel, and transportation sectors are expected to flourish in a big way. However, all types of transports (trains, ships, airplanes, etc.) will be accident-prone this year, and drastic weathers will occur, so proper planning and caution should be exercised. Tourism will see a big boom in 2007, and in general, all areas related to Food, Hotels, Beauty Clinics, Health Spas, Lottery, Advertising, Lighting, Gifts, and Furniture will prosper.


MATTERS OF THE HEART

NEW YEAR, NEW MOON
The date of the Chinese New Year is marked by the second new moon after the winter solstice. This year, the Year of the Pig (Boar), it falls on February 18.
 
LIGHT THE LANTERNS
The 15th day of the Chinese New Year, the last day of the celebration, is called the Lantern Festival. It is usually celebrated at night, with lantern displays and children carrying lanterns in a parade.
 
LET’S GET LOUD
Chinese New Year customs trace their root to ancient mythology. In ancient China, it was believed that a nián (man-eating beast) from the mountains could silently infiltrate houses to prey on humans. Later, the people learned that the beast was sensitive to loud noises and the color red, so they scared it away with explosions, fireworks, and the liberal use of the said color.

MATTERS OF THE HEART

The animals in the Chinese calendar were chosen based on an old legend.
Once upon a time, Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to bid farewell to him before he departed from earth. Only twelve came, and so, as a reward Buddha named a year after each one in the order they arrived. It is believed that the animal ruling the year in which a person is born “is the animal that hides in the person’s heart”, and therefore, influences his/her personality.
