The Year of the Rabbit

The rabbit or hare is the 4th animal in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac. This symbol is associated with the spring months, the morning and wood/earthy colors.

Following the year of the strong tiger, this rabbit/year will be a good time to recover and rebuild. To celebrate the year starting February 3rd, maybe a nice dinner with friends is in order.
