This Friday: Happy Lunar New Year 2014, Year of the Horse!

Happy Lunar New Year!

I want to wish everyone a Happy Lunar New Year, coming from an Asian background, I wish to accept my culture and enjoy the weekend celebration.horseyear

Every year of the Chinese lunar calendar, one of 12 animal symbols of the Chinese zodiac: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar are represented. This year is the year of the Horse (馬 午), if you’re born on these years: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918, 1906— it’s your year. I’m told that the horse year is a year of improving oneself, those who are the year of the horse are bright, warm-hearted, intelligent, and energetic.
