Talan mar a Kinaiak is csak arra emlekeznek, hogy regen mely evekben
nem volt szerencses gyereket vallalni :-) Ezt a levelet egy HK-i
Yes, this year is the one of rabbit. All Chinese people know we have
the basic concept of "animal years". However, it doesn't mean much to me
because I don't know much about animal years in detail.
Actually, there ARE meanings for the animals.
I am born in the year of sheep (1979), and my sister in the year of
rabbit (1975). You know, there are 12 animals as symbol so it is a cycle of
Counting beginning from mouse (as we Chinese usually start counting with
mouse, cow, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken,
this year is the one of rabbit, so the next year it will be dragon's
And you know, some relatives of mine said that in every year of sheep,
such as 1979, 1991, etc. less people have babies because some believe that
kids born in the year of sheep may not be a good one. But I am born in the
year of sheep!!! and i don't believe much on that!
