Hong Kong Public Holidays and Festivals for 2021

The Chinese New Year 2021 Hong Kong will be the start of The Chinese Year of the Ox or Bull. So 2021 might be good time for stockmarkets that could be “bullish”, or it night be a good year to eat more beef. Or if it is a good year for Ox then maybe people will eat less beef and there could be an upsurge of veganism! All options are opening for this exciting year which is the second in the 12 year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. In Chinese the symbol 丑 implies something earthy, so happy year of the 牛年 !

Note that this is not the buffalo or the cow, though those animals are used in other countries they are not done so in Hong Kong for this year.

Hong Kong 2019 Festival Calendar

Welcome to the Year of the Pig in the Chinese Luna zodiac.  A great year for those born in 1995, 1983, 1971 or any of the other pig years.  Although they are supposed to be a little slow they are also emotional and intelligent just like the animal they are named after.

This will be the Year of the Monkey in the Luna Calendar!  Watch out for plenty of Monkey-business, but the public holidays will still run according to schedule. As an ex British Colony, now part of China, and with a mix of English and Chinese influences the holiday and festival calendar is one of the busiest.
