Gung Hay Fat Choy!


February 7, 2008 to January 25, 2009 is the Year of the Rat.

If you were born in 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, you are an Earth Rat!

According to Wikipedia:

Being the first sign of the Chinese zodiacs, rats are leaders, pioneers and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, charismatic, practical and hardworking. Rat people are endowed with great leadership skills and are the most highly organized, meticulous, and systematic of the twelve signs. Intelligent and cunning at the same time, rats are highly ambitious and strong-willed people who are keen and unapologetic promoters of their own agendas, which often include money and power. They are energetic and versatile and can usually find their way around obstacles, and adapt to various environments easily. A rat's natural charm and sharp demeanor make it an appealing friend for almost anyone, but rats are usually highly exclusive and selective when choosing friends and so often have only a few very close friends whom they trust.

Whatever year you were born, eat, drink and have a happy and prosperous new year.

Gung hay fat choy!
