Today is the beginning of the Chinese New Year. This is a day for celebration, a time for fun and feasting with family and friends. According to the Chinese calendar, 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit.
This is the prediction for the year, according to The Holiday Spot:
"A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious Year of the Tiger... A congenial time in which diplomacy, international relations and politics will be given a front seat again. We will act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without too much difficulty.
A time to watch out that we do not become too indulgent... rules and regulations will not be rigidly enforced. No one seems very inclined to bother with these unpleasant realities... The scene is quiet and calm, even deteriorating to the point of somnolence. We will all have a tendency to put off disagreeable tasks as long as possible.
Money can be made without too much labor. Our life style will be languid and leisurely as we allow ourselves the luxuries we have always craved... A temperate year with unhurried pace. For once, it may seem possible for us to be carefree and happy without too many annoyances."
Sounds good to me -- I think I'm going to like the Year of the Rabbit!
