Today we are sharing this oh so adorable Free Layered Year Of The Rabbit Mickey SVG to celebrate Chinese New Year. This is a huge event worldwide and starts on the 22nd Jan 2023, on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month of the Chinese calendar.
The Chinese calendar is a complex calendar with which rotates in 60 year cycle. This based on 12 earthly branches. Each of those is represented by an animal year, and also the five heavenly stems which are earth, wood, fire, water and metal. This year we are celebrating the year of the Rabbit which is the 4th animal in the Chinese Zodiac Calendar.
Please note this is a personal use file only, it’s great for making your own Chinese New Year cards and decorations.
