How amazing are these illuminated terracotta warriors! Ever since they were unearthed, the terracotta warriors have captured peoples imaginations. In what will be a truly magical experience, the Lanterns of the Terracotta Warriors exhibition will be on display at Dawes Point in Sydney from 13-Feb to 22-Feb. The lights will go on at dusk until midnight.

After viewing the Lanterns of the Terracotta Warriors, there are the Lunar Streets and Lunar Markets food festivities or visit chinatown for the lion dance. The Twilight Parade is on Sunday 22-February culminating in a fireworks display. Visit www.sydneychinesenewyear.com for the full festival program.

Gong Hei Fat Choi is the traditional greeting for Chinese New Year meaning 'Congratulations and be prosperous'. The first day of the Year of the Goat is 19-February. The Chinese symbol can translate to goat, sheep and ram in English so it is Year of the Goat/Sheep/Ram.

Those born in this year are said to have a calm nature and an intellectual approach; be gentle, amicable, persevering, seeking an aesthetic beauty. Preferring to be in groups, they are honest, intimate, artistic, creative and compassionate. Sounds like we have the next wave of actors, musicians and designers on the way.

Famous people born in the Year of the Goat include: Michelango, Thomas Edison, Rudolph Valentino, Bruce Willis, Claire Danes and Zhang Ziyi.

Lucky colours are brown, red and purple. Is the Pantone colour of the year, marsala, just a coincidence...
