Kung Hee Fat Choy!!!!!!
Tomorrow marks the lunar new year - Year of the Rat:
I have no affinity for rodents, but here's to hoping Chinese lunar year 4705 is the most prosperous year yet! Now where's my freakin' lucky money?
A Ratty Year
Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in rat years tend to be leaders, pioneers, and conquerors. They are charming, passionate, charismatic, practical and hardworking. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Affleck, Samuel L. Jackson, William Shakespeare, and Mozart were all born in the year of the rat.
