Chinese New Year

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Last week Thursday 1/4 of the world population (the Chinese ;)) celebrated the start of their New Year.

2008 is the the year of the Rat, as you might know Chinese name their years after animals.

Coincidentally, I am born in the year of the Rat…a different kind of rat though. 1972 was the year of the Water Rat, 2008 is the year of the Earth Rat…oops, am afraid it’s gonna be muddy for me this year! 😉
