Oh rats! The city is swarming with rats. Amazingly, more rats are needed to meet the demand. Still, they're everywhere! Rats are on calendar covers.
Rats are masquerading as big stuffed toys.
There are little ceramic rats.
Rats are promising a year of success and wealth. Welcome to 2008, the Year of the Rat.
Whew! We made it through 2007, The Year of the Pig.
As you can see, Russia is into Chinese astrology. That's not my cuppa tea but it is fun to see the animal of the year absolutely everywhere. We were talking about this recently in our children's Bible class and one little guy piped up and said, I was born in the year of the snake! Another said, Well, I was born in the year of the lion. Somebody else said, Hey, I was born in the year of the snake too!
Well,how about you? Do you happen to know the animal of the year in the year of your birth?
