Year of the Rabbit in Flagler County

This is a guest-blog-post by Larry Maccherone from Pak’s Karate serving Flagler County

Chinese New Year starts with the new moon on the first day of the new year, and that is today, February 3, 2011.   The lunar year is 4709.

This is the Year of the Rabbit.

The origins go to the story of Buddha asking all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Only twelve animals came for the meeting, and Buddha named a year after each one.

He announced that the people born in each animal's year would have some of that animal's personality. Those born in rabbit years are popular, compassionate, and sincere.

Some of the famous folks born in the Year of Rabbit are: Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Jordan, and Drew Barrymore.

The rabbit is extremely lucky in business and monetary transactions; and astute at striking bargains. The Rabbit is said to be a calm year during which relaxation, happiness and a carefree attitude are said to be easy to obtain.

It’s been a few trying years in Palm Coast, so let's embrace the Rabbit, and follow suite with the calm relaxed traits of the Rabbit. In the traditional celebration we should take this chance to spend time with family and friends.  The New Year is also referred to as a time to celebrate birthday as we are all one year older.

Xin Nian Kuai Le!  Happy New Year!
