The year of the Rabbit has started

Happy Chinese New Year! 

The tiger year (2010) has just given way for the year of the rabbit (2011). The Chinese use the Chinese Zodiac that relates each year to an animal and it's attributes. This zodiac has a lot of similarities to the Western zodiac with some major difference whereas the western zodiac has labels for each month of the year; the Chinese zodiac has a 12 part cycle divided into years.

This evening I will be going to a Chinese restaurant to celebrate this day with an Asian friend of mine. Bring along the chopsticks and the large quantities of food!!
