It’s the Year of the Tiger! Get Lucky

Bring on the Tiger!  The start of the Lunar New Year is arriving on the first of February and it’s the Year of the Tiger.

Not every Lunar Year makes for a great fashion statement.  Year of the Rat anyone?  But in 2022, we are busting out all of our Tiger fashion, jewelry, and accessories.  After all who doesn’t love a little animal print in your life?

The History

The Lunar New Year celebrated by millions of people around the globe, is on a twelve-year cycle. While the Western solar calendar is based on the earth’s passage around the sun, lunar calendars set their timing on the different phases of the moon.  Each phase has its own zodiac symbol, an animal, that comes back around every twelve years.

Last year it was the Ox, diligent, dependable, and determined.  This year it’s the Tiger, a symbol of strength and courage.   

2022 is predicted to be very lucky for those born during a year of the goat.  Any GOATS out there?  You can find out your lunar animal here.

No surprise, based on Madge’s birthday, she’s a Rooster since she loves feather hats and strutting around. 🙂

So get your Tiger on with these fabulous vintage selections from MadgesHatbox.
