Happy Chinese New Year!

For those of you who do not already know, this is the year of the ox. I have always been intrigued by other cultures, so I had to investigate what the characteristics are of the person born during the year of the ox. This is what I found:

Year of the ox: 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009

People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people (Chinese Culture Center).
