The New Year of the Ox-Gung Hei Fat Choy

Gung Hei Fat Choy

Happy Chinese New Year, today begins the year of the Ox. I'm hoping this year will be better than last year, the year of the Rat, but the Rat is most compatible with the Monkey, the year I was born. So, not that much better probably. I can't imagine how bad it would have been if it had been a sign that didn't get along with the Monkey. Yikes! It is supposed to be a good year and very productive by hard working people. I guess sort of like when President Obama said it is time for us to get up, dust ourselves off, and get to work. President Obama was born during the year of the Ox.

Here is what to people born under the sign of the Ox are like

"In the Chinese zodiac, people who are born in the Year of the Ox are considered as calm and dependable as their animal symbol. Not only are they modest but they are able to bear nearly any amount of hardship without complaint. Logical and systematic to the point of having little imagination, an ox person with their mind made up is rarely dissuaded from their decision. Because of their honesty and patience, these people are always welcome and typically have many friends who appreciate their quiet but relaxed sociability." Not being Chinese I got my information from this site is
