Gong Xi Fa Cai
« on: February 05, 2008, 06:24:01 AM »

(Pronounced Gung Hay Fat Choy)

On February 7, it is officially the Chinese New Year.  Everyone wear red on Thursday, as it is believed that to wear red on Chinese New Year is to bring good luck.

Welcome to the Year of the Rat!

I heard years of the rat are good years for business.  I also know that my sister vowed never to have a rat child, so...  yeah, no niece or nephew for Chrislea this year.  >.>

Im an earth sheep - which sounds weird - but is much more accurate than the Western Zodiac.

Weirdly, all the ones for my husband NEVER match up.  It says he is a Rooster, and I swear its not even CLOSE to him except in the most minor, minor ways.

Im going to have to find some red to wear, I dont buy much red=3

I believe I'm a wood rat.  Nervous, honest, and smart. 

Hmmm, I have one red shirt.  I'll make a point to wear it.
