Happy Chinese New Year 2011! Year of the Rabbit.

Welcome! Please visit regularly to learn cool and interesting happenings and facts about  Chinese New Year in the context of Vancouver, British Columbia's fascinating Chinatown, and the yearly Chinese New Year parade. Gung Hei Fat Choi!

The Rabbit (Xin Mao) tends to exhibit the following traits: gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky, flexible, but can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn.

Consequently, 2011 will also be a year of general friendship, courtesy, and loving kindness to others, while tempered with the occasional need for individuals to look after one's self, since if you can't help yourself, you can't help others! :)
