Chinese New Year
It's the year of the Rabbit
Legend has it that in ancient times, the Rabbit had a long, furry tail and he liked to curl it around himself and sleep comfortably in his burrow. When hungry, he would pop his head out and lazily eat the green grass at the entrance of his burrow.
One day, a wolf found the place where the rabbit lived and quietly lurked close by ready to ambush him.
One morning as the sun came up, Rabbit woke hungry and began eating the grass close by. The wolf was quick and grabbed Rabbits long tail with his teeth. Rabbit tried to escape by vigorously kicking his strong hind legs and when the wolf was kicked in the face, his sharp teeth bit off Rabbit's tail. The wolf was stunned for a few seconds but regained his senses quickly and began chasing Rabbit.
At this very moment, a roar came from the sky and a little white dragon stepped between Rabbit and the wolf. The little white dragon stopped the wolf in his tracks and the Rabbit made his escape but lost his lovely long tail.
The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture.
2023 is predicted to be a year of hope.
