Happy Year of the Horse!

Happy Chinese New Year! 2014 is the Year of the Wood Horse.Eight chinese knots

According to tradition, the Horse is bright, warmhearted, intelligent, and clever–but also impatient, hot-blooded, and rarely listens to good advice.  I have a couple of friends born in a horse year, and I can attest to the description 🙂

Also according to tradition, you should be careful what activities you participate in on the first day of the new year. Apparently, whatever you choose to do signifies what will be in abundance for you during the year. I have plans to write, hit the gym, and go out to dinner with friends, which sounds like a good foundation for a great year.

My all-time favorite New Year tradition is the warning against cleaning your house since you might sweep away any good fortune that comes your way. When I told Mark I wouldn’t be doing any housework on Friday he asked, “This is something new?”

It’s such fun living with a smart ass.
