It’s the Lunar New Year and the Chinese Year of the Horse.

According to the Chinese calendar, last year was the year of the snake - a year that can potentially bring many challenges… Uh huh …

Well, hang in there.  This New Year promises to be better!

This year's horse - a Green Wooden Horse - is a symbol of spring and renewal.

Chinese New Year is also called Spring Festival and Lunar New Year.  Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year.

Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal’s year would have some of that animal’s personality.  

The horse birth years are 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, and 2002.

Those born in a horse year are thought to be cheerful, skillful with money, perceptive, witty, talented and good with their hands.

What do ya say?
Are we fortunate to have so many different New Year's and so many opportunities for "do-overs" in our lives, or what?
