January 31, 2014, marks the first day of the 15-day-long Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, and we would like to wish our Asian neighbors a hearty gung hay fat choy!
It’s the year of the horse, a symbol of energy, warmth, intelligence and ability. People born during the year of the horse are believed to be born communicators; clever and talkative. They can also be superficial and hot-blooded. But we like them anyway.
Some celebrities born the year of the horse include Harrison Ford, Sir Isaac Newton, Barbara Streisand, Kobe Bryant, and Emperors Kangxi and Yongzheng of China’s Qing Dynasty. Duh.
A happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to you all!
