Chinese Year of the Rat

Having just celebrated the New Year, the Red Cat Journal thought it would make sense to review the upcoming Chinese New Year. For 2008, the Chinese New Year falls on Feb. 7th and the year will end on Jan. 25th, 2009. On Feb. 7th, the year of the Rat begins and the year of the Pig ends.

If you or someone you know is expecting a child, here are some characteristics said to be associated with those born in the Rat year: forthright, disciplined, systematic, meticulous, charismatic, hardworking, industrious, charming, eloquent, sociable, shrewd. Can be manipulative, cruel, dictatorial, rigid, selfish, obstinate, critical, over-ambitious, ruthless, intolerant, scheming.
