On Thursday, February 3rd, the Chinese Spring Festival will begin. Actually, a more familiar name would be the Chinese New Year, and this year it will be the Year of the Rabbit. Last year was the Year of the Ox and next year it will be my year, the Year of the Dragon.The Chinese years have interesting animal names, instead of boring numbers like Western years, but there are only twelve animals that have the honor of having a year named after them.
2013 is the Chinese year of the snake.
