Is Chinese New Year a religious festival?

No, Chinese new year has the same meaning as the international new year on 1st January, but based on a traditional Chinese calender instead of a modern international calendar. So for each year, the Chinese new year dates are different. Chinese New Year is more of a Chinese festival using traditional Chinese customs and beliefs; and not anything directly to do with religious elements. Just take it literally: it is just Chinese's New Year. Other races will have their own New Years using their own traditional calendars i.e. Malays.

When will the Next year of the ox occur in the Chinese calendar?

Chinese New Year for 2009 is on the 26th of January: the Year of the Yin Earth Ox.

In Chinese Astrology each sign is represented by an animal. There are 12 animal signs in total, each corresponding to a lunar year, with each sign also having 5 elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal & Water). In certain years, particular elements are more prominent. For instance in 2005, the 'wood' element is very prominent so therefore it is 2005, Year of the Wood Rooster. The special combination of the Sign and Element only occurs once every 60 years.

As Chinese Astrology is one of the oldest types of Astrology, the origins of naming the years after animals is unknown. But a popular legend is that Buddha (c.563-c.483 B.C) invited all the animals to visit him, and as a demonstration of thanks to those who came, he dedicated a year to each of the animals according to the order in which they arrived: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.
