On Friday, February 16th, we officially enter into the Year of the Dog. The Chinese New Year, also known as the Lunar New Year, is celebrated for 15 days during the Spring Festival. If you’re an old hat at celebrating the Chinese New Year, or if you’re going to attend the festivities for the first time, get ready to be wowed by amazing fireworks, lantern displays, parades, and delicious foods. Needless to say, your Instagram feed will be poppin’.
We’ve compiled a few catchy Instagram captions that might perfectly put into words what you’re feeling when you feast your eyes upon the festivities.
Whether you plan on celebrating the Chinese New Year or not, we think we can all appreciate what the Year of the Dog predicts for 2018 — especially if we do so in a respectful, informative manner. The Dog is one of the 12 animals on the Chinese Zodiac calendar. It represents a year filled with loyalty, independence, enthusiasm, and productivity. Plus, who doesn’t like celebrating dogs? They honestly deserve all the praise they can get.
Alongside our corny humor, we also included a few Chinese proverbs in the list that could make for excellent Instagram captions. The wise old sayings will inspire you and your followers to welcome thoughtfulness and kindness into the year ahead. And also, dogs. Welcome dogs into 2018.
