Happy Chinese New Year!

This is the year 4711 and the year of the snake!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO OUR CHINESE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS

PEACE AND PROSPERITY FOR ALL!

To all our Asian Friends, Happy New Year!  This is the year 4711, and the year of the Snake. 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. Those born in snake years are wise, charming, gregarious, introverted, generous, and smart.  The fifteen day period that begins on the day of the new year is the most important period of time of the year.  Workers are often given the entire time off from work and are bestowed with relatively large financial gifts for good luck.
