How Do You Avoid Bad Luck in the 2018 Chinese New Year of the Dog? Ask MAX!
Grab the leash and your best friend to celebrate the 2018 Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dog! This year's celebration starts on Friday, February 16, and we thought it only fitting that we would ask our RE/MAX Founder and Chairman of the Board Dave Liniger's beloved dog Max to give us all some tips to avoid bad luck in the year of well — HIM.
KNOW YOUR CHINESE ZODIAC: ARE YOU A DOG?
Max says your birth year reveals a lot about your personality traits. If you were born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and 2018 you've got something in common with Max — you're both DOGS — known to be active, loyal and vigilant. Sounds about right because Max loves playing fetch and is very protective of his RE/MAX family. Max fun fact: the year 2018 is the first year of the earth dog since 1958! Find out which of the 12 Chinese zodiac animal signs you are from Travel China Guide.
LOVE LIKE YOUR DOG
Max is like most four-legged friends — he's a lover, not a fighter. Who's always excited to greet you at the door with kisses? Max! If you greet your buddies with slobbery kisses and a wagging tail — that can make anyone feel like a million bucks! The year of the dog is a year of social change and an opportunity to change how you live your life — love everyone in your life the way your dog loves you. Learn why dogs are the most honest, loyal friends you'll ever find.
HONOR THE DOG IN YOUR LIFE
Dogs are man's best friend and they've worked REALLY hard to win that title! If you were born in the year of the dog, you and Max share some qualities. Max suggests that you make friends with the dogs in your life — especially at work where they are known for being communicative, serious and responsible in the workplace. Learn about more traits of people born in the year of the dog.
PICK THOSE TREATS CAREFULLY
Like any good dog, Max is known to beg for tasty treats. But, don't waste those doggie biscuits on your two-legged friends. Instead, Max found some tips to make sure you don't buy the wrong gift that brings bad luck in the year of the dog. Find out why you should avoid the groomer, clocks, umbrellas, pears, mirrors and shoes.
PICK THE RIGHT COLORS
Max says to paint the town RE/MAX red! For those who are superstitious — red is your color. In the Chinese New Year, red is considered lucky and people decorate every part of their home with the rosy color to bring them good luck. But, avoid white and black because they are the colors of a funeral and considered bad luck. Why red is the color of Chinese New Year.
