Chinese Lunar New Year 2014, Melbourne Australia

Share/Bookmark

Chinese New Year begins according to the Chinese calendar which consists of both Gregorian and lunar-solar calendar systems. Because the track of the new moon changes from year to year, Chinese New Year can begin anytime between late January and mid-February. The Lunar New Year is the biggest and the most significant celebration in China being observed worldwide by the Chinese. Each year in the Chinese calendar has a corresponding zodiac animal, and today marks the turnover from the Year of the Snake to the Year of the Horse.

How to Move House in New Zealand

Share/Bookmark

This is how you move house in New Zealand. The tractor on the right is ploughing a track/exit for the truck to manoeuvre the house onto the road for the journey up State Highway 45. The cost of moving the house will depend mainly on the time it takes, which depends in turn on the route to be travelled, the size of the house and the degree of difficulty. It can range from a few thousand dollars to move a single-piece house, with the price increasing for the number of pieces, location and difficulty.
