People born in the year of the horse are said to be good communicators, clever and like to be in the limelight. They are cheerful talented but stubborn, bad tempered and wasteful. Sheesh...my year of the ox is starting to look better all the time. On the other hand, I don't take too much stock in these character traits. After all, Oprah's a horse. Oh wait...Genghis Khan was also a horse. Hmmm....
Feng shui masters are warning that the year of the horse will be volatile, with scandals, wars, bad weather, natural disasters, conflicts, and economic issues. In other words, it will be much like any other year.
So today, as every year, we celebrated. We celebrated the end of a month. We celebrated the upcoming month, February, which is full of special days and activities. We celebrated that the days are getting longer. We celebrated that it didn't snow today. We celebrated that it's Chinese New Year. After all, why not celebrate whenever we can?
