Why are there so many Chinese people travelling? Because they are heading home for the Chinese New Year. It is the Year of the Rooster.

Chinese New Year, which was Saturday 28th January this year, is the Year of the Rooster. This celebration is also known as "The Spring Festival" and it's marked by the lunisolar Chinese Calendar, so the date changes from year to year. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. Accoding to this calendar, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal in the cycle and it won't be again until 2029. What a long time!

In the Chinese Zodiac Calendar I'm the dragon since I was born in the year 2000. People whose zodiac sign is the dragon are powerful, confident, smart and witty, but lack self-awareness. It is said that we also have a bad temper.

It would be great to be the best at something, such as singing, dancing, at school, etc. Although I've never been the best at anything, I'm very good at rollerblading, either on land or on ice. That's what my friends say when we go together to the ice rink. However, I think that I'm not as good as professional skaters. I'm also good at languages.

Now, I'm going to give you some advice of how to try to be the best at doing something. Firstly, the thing you want to be the best at should be something that you really like. Secondly, you have to be practising it for years. If you aren't good at something, you can try to be the best dad, the best friend or maybe, the best husband.

It would be amazing to have superpowers, and it's very funny to imagine how different my life would be if I had some of them. For instance,I'd like to be able to become invisible so as to listen to what people say about me, I'd be able to go out of my home without my parents knowing it, and play pranks. I would also like to fly, which has been my dream since I was little. Finally, I would like to have the superpower of healing, so I'd be able to save lots of lives. On the contrary, I wouldn't like to know what all the people think since I'd become crazy.
