    Happy Chinese New Year!

    [COLOR=ffcc00]February 09, 2005 is the year of the Rooster. [/COLOR]



    Chinese New Year is February 09, 2005, which is the year 4702 in the Lunar Calendar.

    For good luck, the house should be cleaned before New Year Eve.

    You should try to repay your debts by this time.

    If you haven't taken a shower, don't bother. Doing so washed away your good luck.

    It's a lucky sign to hear a song bird, red-colored bird, or a swallow.

    Do not use scissors as this may cut off your fortune.


    The New Year is a time of reconciliation. Old grudges are set aside, and the atmosphere is marked by warmth and friendliness. The visits continue for several days, marked by a great deal of gift giving. Passersby greet one another in various dialects: Sun Nean Fai Lok and Xin Nain Kuai Le (Happy New Year) or Kung Hey Fat Choi, and Gong Xi Fa Cai (May Prosperity Be With You).

    Happy Chinese New Year Midibuddy Members!

    My animal sign is the Rooster:
    The sign of the Rooster indicates a person who is hard-working and definite about their decisions. Roosters are not afraid to speak their minds and can therefore sometimes come across as boastful. They make good restaurant owners and world travellers.

    Sounds like me! ...actually, folks guess me as a monkey... in fact that describes me to a "T" as well ... hmnnnn...? Vague? :laugh:

    Here's my fortune!-
    "Utility is when you have one telephone, luxury is when you have two, opulence is when you have three -- and paradise is when you have none.":laugh:

    first of all happy chinese new year to everyone!!!!:D

    i'm a wood rabbit . and they say that:

    "Rabbits are affectionate, co-operative and pleasant, with lots of friends. But they can get too sentimental and seem superficial. Ideal careers areas include law, diplomacy or the stage."

    not really a perfect fit, but it's me.. :thumbsup:

    and my fortune reads:

    "Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have. "

    Oh! Fortunes! I gorfot... forgot... :)

    My first one sucked, so I drew again.

    Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.

    Not too bad for fortune cookie advice... ;)

    Oh MY!!!!!! How does this cookie know so much about me?!?!?

    Resisting temptation is easier when you think you'll probably get another chance later on.

    Saw this thread and just wanted to wish you all a Happy Chinese New Year! I was just talking about this Holiday with some online friends somewhere else, and it seems sooo interesting! Much different than American Holidays with all the traditions, and "rules" so to speak! We just celebrate and there aren't a lot of customs to any of our holidays lol!

    Oh, BTW, I am a Dragon

    I'm also a Rabbit
    This little Rabbit stayed up late on Chinese New Year
    (your not supposed to go to bed early)
    This little Rabbit didn't sweep on Chinese New Years Day
    (don't wanna sweep all my money and luck away)
    This little Rabbit went to Box Hill (Chinese Suburb in my City)
    and watched for the Dragon to eat the cabbage outside the shops and heard all the loud fire crackers!

    Happy Chinese New Year to ALL!
    Happy Year of the Rat!
