    Default Happy New Year! Year of the Rabbit

    http://www.theholidayspot.com/chines...acs/rabbit.htm

    A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year.

    Good taste and refinement will shine on everything and people will acknowledge that persuasion is better than force. 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. The influence of the Rabbit tends to spoil those who like too much comfort and thus impair their effectiveness and sense of duty.

    Law and order will be lax; rules and regulations will not be rigidly enforced. No one seems very inclined to bother with these unpleasant realities. They are busy enjoying themselves, entertaining others or simply taking it easy. 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 for. A temperate year with unhurried pace. For once, it may seem possible for us to be carefree and happy without too many annoyances.

    As if western Astrology breaking all people down by month wasn't absurd enough, the Chinese have to do it by YEAR.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    The New Year in China is an impoortant celebratory tradition. No need to invoke the lack of Science in Astrology. These are RICH historical traditions. You need to actually experience them with a Native family to really understand their importance, especially for an increasingly SECULAR culture which needs to hang on to some of its PAST?

    My first time in China as a student/researcher was in the year of the Rabbit. And I remember it with great 'fondness'. So much was going on...little did we know what that future portended a decade or two later!

    The OP had nothing to do with a celebratory tradition, it had to do with what looked like a newspaper astrology column. I wholeheartedly embrace fun traditions -- I celebrate my own family's / ancestor's "tradition" of Christmas without involving the spiritual aspect -- but see no point in carrying on pointless astrological significance to them.

    Actually, it has much to do with a celebratory tradition. Every year a different animal is presented and along with it a different meaning and fortune to look forward to in the new year. It's about hope and optimism, not much different from singing Aud Lang Syne and watching the ball drop.

    Happy New Year

    For whatever reason, my family (and numerous extended family ) all follow the Chinese one. No one ever explained why and I never bothered to ask.

    I didn't get any lucky money. I've reached an age where all I do is hand it out hence I'm out of red pouches. And I'm out of money.

    Happy New Year to you!
