What’s worth noting about the 2011 Chinese New Year?
The Year of the Rabbit
The Chinese astrology is known for its twelve animal sign rotating cycle with each animal sign assigned to a year and representing a particular type of personality. One animal is designated for each year: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. In general, you will know which animal sign you belong depending on your birth year following the Chinese calendar and not the Gregorian calendar (starts on January). In particular, the exact hour, day and month of birth may vary your Chinese astrological animal sign. Those born during the year of a certain animal were believed to share some of the qualities and characteristics of that animal.
What is said about the Year of the Rabbit?
Rabbit brings a great deal of welcomed time of trouble-free days, comfortable living, and simply an easy life. Everyone is on their best demeanor while enjoying a lax time. No more stiff rules and regulations, and all things not so pleasant are put on hold. Thus, the 2011 Chinese New Year is a good time for those burnt by the Tiger’s claws to lick their wounds, lay back and enjoy the serenity.
Who wouldn’t want to be comfortable and peaceful? Come and enjoy the calmness that the Year of the Rabbit brings to all, regardless of the zodiac sign.
