Wishing everyone a very happy Chinese New Year. It began on Thursday, February 7, 2008.

According to the Chinese Zodiac, this year is the 'Year of the Rat'.

Unlike the West where this rodent is seen as a dirty pest, in the East it is a respected animal and symbolic of wit and wealth.

I don’t find it funny at all, as the rats are also worshiped in India also. Let’s just enjoy this happy new year of rats.

Happy new year. I don't live in Asia, but it is a very big deal out there.
