It is the Tibetan New Year, also

We celebrated the Chinese New Year today. According to the Chinese calendar, it is the year 4072, or 3, depending on who is counting. I have seen both years listed as this coming year. This coming year is also the year of the Rooster. Aka the Green Wood Chicken Year. The Chinese use an intricate system to define the characteristics of the various years. The Five elements add other dimensions to the characteristics of the various year's animal signatures. For instance, I am a metal monkey. I kind of like being a metal monkey.

Tomorrow, it is Losar, or the celebration of the Tibetan New Year. This year will be the year of the Wood Hen.

Wear some red for good luck, and, Happy New Year!
