The Chinese New Year starts today.

Today is the first day of the New Year on the Chinese lunar calendar. Each year of the calendar’s 16-year cycle is represented by an animal. According to the Chinese zodiac, people born during a given year share traits with that animal. 2010 is the year of the tiger. Those born under this year are supposed to be short-tempered, suspicious, adventurous, sensitive, emotional, and risk-takers.
