Happy New Years!
Yea, I could've said Year of the... the other thing. Get your minds out of the gutter people.
This marks Year 4703 in the Chinese Calendar. I laugh at your backward ass 2005 years :)
People born this lunar year, or who are turning 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and other multiples of 12 are all roosters. The Chinese zodiac animals are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and boar, the order in the cycle determined by how they placed in a legendary race.
Like any holiday anywhere else in the world, this one is filled with food and booze.
So go out and have a Happy New Years today!!
