Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year...

About 1.3 billion people are taking two weeks off to celebrate... did you know it's the Year of the Rat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_(zodiac))?


The Rat (Chinese:鼠) was welcomed in ancient times as a protector and bringer of material prosperity. It is the first of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. Rat is associated with aggression, wealth, charm, and order, yet also associated with death, war, the occult, pestilence, and atrocities.

I'd call that kind of a mixed bag.... :laugh:
