And so today begins the Chinese Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, 2011 being the year of the Rabbit. I wish you all happiness on this precious occassion. Welcome predictions are that it will be a placid year after the ferocious year of the Tiger. Should we be going off to a quiet spot and licking our wounds, or just embracing the kindness, energy and fun that a bunny brings. All good fortune to you China! Personally I’m a Monkey, and do my utmost to find fun and play whichever year we’re in.
