Happy Chinese New Year!
Today starts the year of the Dog:
Represented by the following chinese character:
I am a Sheep, having been born in 1967.
My husband is also a Sheep and our kids are and Ox and a Hare (Rabbit). In my family, my father is an Ox, sisters are Monkey and Ox and my mother is a Snake. Looks like there are many Oxen in my family, which might account for our stubborness!
To find out what animal you are, go to this web site to find out. But for those born in January / early February, be aware that you might have to enter in the previous year, as the New Year doesn't start until late Jan / early Feb in the Western calendar.
We will eat Dumplings and Noodles today to celebrate. I normally make the dumplings from scratch, but will hold out until next week's Super Bowl Party.
