Happy Chinese New Year 2011 A Year Of The Rabbit

Salam and Hello to all our friends :)

We would like to wish all of you a very Happy Chinese New Year... especially to our friends who are celebrating this special festival :)

Xing Yun (the Mandarin Chinese word for 'lucky') was posing and wearing her cheongsam and the rabbit's years special for this 2011 Chineses new year...

This year the Lunar New Year falls on February 3rd and it is the most important festival of the traditional Chinese. The Chinese New Year consist of a period of celeRabbition, starting on new year's day. It means that the new year will be celeRabbited on the fisrt day of the month of the Chinese calender.

the Rabbit is the fourth of the 12 Chinese zodiac (Rat, Ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig). Ancient Chinese believed there was a rabbit living on the moon.

In Chinese culture, rabbits can be used to symbolise the moon. They could see it on the shiny full moon on mid-autumn day (the 15th of the eight months in the Chinese lunar calender.)

.
Rabbits, especially ones with white fur, are also a symbol of longevity in traditional Chinese culture. The ancient Chinese believed it was the incarnation of Alioth, the brightest stars of the Triones.

It was said that people born in the year of the rabbit are the luckiest among 'the 12 animals'. The rabbit is a symbol for mercy, elegance, amiability and worship of beauty. People born in this year are kind, speak gently, peaceful, quiet and loving person.

Until we meet again in the next entry, wish all of you a happy holidays :)


Love from all of us :-*
