Chinese New Year

Fred in China
According to the Chinese New Year/Zodiac, this is the year of the rabbit.    Krista pointed out I did have a 1975 so Justin is also a rabbit (of course I was there - senior moment I guess!).  You are too if you were born in years:
1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023

Rabbit personality traits
Although generally calm, gentle and loving, Rabbit people can be very ambitious and intuitively know how to get ahead in the world.

They are good listeners, kind and sweet by nature, and are therefore often sought out as popular and trusted friends. Generally noted for their physical beauty, Rabbits like to surround themselves with beautiful things. They have a good eye for art, design and fashion, and are usually at the top of anyone's Best Dressed list.
Others may call the Rabbit timid, but those born under this sign rightly view themselves as wise and cautious.
Rabbits are rarely known to make a move or jump into any new situation without first carefully considering all their options. No one is more surprised than Rabbits when they win a poker hand or hit the jackpot at the races, although at times good luck just seems to come their way unbidden

Rabbits are regarded as the peacemakers in any group. They remain calm in any situation, and are very slow to anger.
In close personal relationships they can be very romantic, but their natural cautiousness prevents them from settling down or committing to any one person right away.

At work, they excel by remaining cool and collected, and can be relied upon for extreme tact in delicate business dealings.

Characteristics of The Rabbit
The three words that best describe the rabbit? Calm and gentle, but persistent. Quietly charismatic, thoughtful and calm, rabbits are admired for their tactful and considerate dealings with all who know them. As such, they are most often depended upon for their wise counsel, or as someone in which to put valued trust in a personal friendship or a business dealing.

One of the most cautious signs in the Chinese zodiac, they are the chess players who take their sweet time before making a move. Yet, they are also the ones most likely to win any intricate game of strategy!

This most obvious of rabbit personality traits also spills into their romantic dealings, and rabbits will not commit to any one person right away.

Once they are settled down in a domestic relationship, however, no truer or more sweeter spouse is likely to be found.

Rabbits are most compatible with (I knew it!) : Sheep, Dog, Pig

Since this is my year, I'm supposed to be blessed with good fortune.  I'm ready!!


  1. Interesting list of traits . . . especially when you consider the fact that I was also born in the year of the Rabbit. :)

  2. Now that is embarrassing considering I was there. Somehow I skipped over 1975.
