    Gung Hay Fat Choy!

    And thanks for reminding me, my partner & I will go to our favorite Chinese restaurant to celebrate.

    Year of the Rabbit: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999

    People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.


    BTW, I'm an "Ox" (1949) and there's some truth to this description, except for the "speak little" part:

    People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I prefer the term Lunar New Year because Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc also celebrate it. It's the year of the Rabbit for Chinese and year of the cat for Vietnamese.

    It means that this year you're going to have to wear red underwear to ward of evil spirits.

    No I'm not kidding:

    "For those turning 12, 24, 36 etc. (the Chinese Zodiac uses a cycle of 12), termed benming nian, or the meeting of one’s zodiac year, traditional Chinese belief is that it can be an unlucky year. To ward off any dangers that might befall you in your benming nian, it helps to wear red. Red is one of the luckiest colors in Chinese traditions, standing for loyalty, success and happiness.

    If you’re really traditional, you should wear red every day, all year long. If you’re not a big fan of the color red in your outer wardrobe, red underwear is an easy way to protect yourself against the hazards of benming nian. Better ask your sweetheart for more than one pair!"

    And I can vouch that every single grocery store and department store in China is selling red underwear like gangbusters right now.
