119. The Year of the Rabbit

God of Prosperity
The rabbit is one of the twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac. 

People born in 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999  are rabbits.

Rabbits are :
  • reserved, kind and good-tempered
  • trustworthy and conscientious
  • wise and virtuous
  • articulate and talented
  • ambitious and have a talent for making money
  • cultured, have excellent taste and beautiful manners
  • hospitable and attentive to others
  • gossipy but tactful
  • most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog

Ruby Tuesday
My World Tuesday
The Asian malls are decorated for Chinese New Year.  A great way to enjoy the festivities is to visit the malls in Richmond, BC to experience the sights, sounds and taste of this special time.  Richmond is part of the Greater Vancouver Regional District and is accessible by public transport.  Take the Canada Line to Aberdeen station and you are right there.

Happy New Year!
