The Year Of The Rabbit

The Year Of The Rabbit
Its The Year Of The Rabbit

Today is the Asian Lunar New Year and the beginning of the Year Of The Rabbit.

So… Relax, Think Happy Thoughts, Get Lucky, And Make Some Babies?

Yes, in China and across most of Asia, this now the Year Of The Rabbit, specifically the Water Rabbit. It is considered the luckiest zodiac year, characterized by peaceful and patient energy, good luck, creativity, and fertility.

But, in Vietnam, It’s The Year Of The Cat

As I wrote though, it’s the Year Of The Rabbit across most of Asia. In Vietnam – possibly because of odd crossovers between the pronunciation of rabbit in Mandarin and the written form in Kmer; possibly because the Vietnamese have a longstanding and not unexpected bias against the Chinese – this is the start of the Year Of The Cat.

So, so as to both limit Chinese cultural tyranny and to make some inroads against my own personal anti-Vietnamese bias, here’s some fine cats as well. After all, 50 years is a bit long to hang on to that level of hate. πŸ˜‰
