Kung Hei Fat Choi my friends!

Kung Hei Fat Choi! 
and Happy New Year of the Snake to you!


Today begins the first day of the Chinese New Year. Since a little part of me is Chinese I wanted to tell you a little bit more about the year of the snake...

This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve. However, there better be no snakes in this mother fucking plane!!!! Adapted from [here]

I had my chinese new year's dinner yesterday, but if you venture out to eat chinese food today, make sure you have some dumplings for good luck! And if you see small red envelopes around...that just means someone is gifting money and wishing them fortune and prosperity!

Just like the astrological zodiac signs, the Chinese have their own zodiac and horoscope too! The Chinese actually designate each year with one of 12 animals. The Chinese calendar uses a unique counting system so that every 12 years, a new cycle begins. If you want to know which sign represents you, just look for the year of your birthday below to find it:


Therefore, instead of asking "How old are you?", you can ask "In which (animal) year were you born?" If you are asking me, I'd tell you I am "Year of the Monkey".

What does your birth year say about you?

  2. Year of the dragon. Great post, I did not know much about any of this. Cute blog!

  3. Apparently I am year of the dog but was told when I was younger that I was the year of the Rat. Not sure what either mean but I'll take the dog over the rat because rat's kinda give me the creeps (I spent a semester studying them in undergrad).

  4. Thanks for sharing, I'm the year of the Ox...interesting stuff! :)

  5. I'm the year of the Ox but I don't think it describes me at all...haha.
