In China, each lunar cycle has 60 years and 12 years is regarded as a small cycle. Each of the 12 years is defined by an animal sign: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. 2018 is the Year of the Dog.
To celebrate the Chinese New Year on February 16, 2018, why not pick up a bakeware item from the library. We have puppy cake pans, a silicone Bones and Paws pan, Hello Kitty, and several flower shaped items like cookie cutters, and a daisy cake pan – to help you make some cherry blossom treats.
