Gong hay fat choy! This Saturday is the official Chinese New Year, and the Year of the Cock is entering on Jan. 28 according to the Chinese Zodiac. Peckers will be proudly on display at celebrations worldwide, and Chinese New Year parades and parties will pull out the cock floats, decorations and well-hung banners to celebrate the event with a bang. To welcome the Year of the Cock, we go deep inside all of the customs and traditions that will help you give a proper Year of the Cock ring in.

The San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade is not until February 11 because the city cannot fit the Cock in until this particular weekend. You’ll certainly see paraders riding a big cock at the Chinatown parade in two weeks. But there will be d-lightful celebrations of cock all over the globe on Saturday, and many will try to stay up all night long celebrating.

EXPLORING THE COCK TRADITIONS

They Year of the Cock comes upon us every 12 years, and if you were born in 1969, 1981, 1993 or 2005 then you are totally a Cock. The Cock knows when to be firm and is hard to handle when provoked. Ironically, Chinese culture says the Year of the Cock is will be sucky for those who have that zodiac sign, so you can take that cock superstition however you like.

THE FIRE COCK

Just like every cock is different, each Year of the Cock is also somewhat different. 2017 will be the Year of the Fire Cock, whereas 2005 was Year of the Wood Cock, 1993 was the Year of the Water Cock, 1991 was the Year of the Gold Cock and 1969 was Year of the Earth Cock.

Whatever type of cock you have on the Chinese Zodiac, you’ll be hanging out in the Year of the Cock from this weekend onward. You may want to gobble down some cock this weekend, or show off you cock pride for the rest of the Year of the Cock.
