This year we welcome the Chinese New Year on Tuesday 5 February.

Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals, which appear in the Chinese zodiac. And this year it’s the Year of the Pig.

You can celebrate Chinese New Year with the Better Hearing Initiative (BHI) by having your Chinese zodiac animal inserted into your earmoulds. Your Chinese zodiac sign is derived from your birth year, according to the Chinese lunar calendar. Use the table below to work out which animal represents your year of birth.
