I'm da bunny! :)

We had chinese drummers and dragon parade down the street where I work (full of restaurants and pubs) and they were allowed in the casino and on to the gaming floor (much to some customers annoyance). Great atmosphere and fun. :lol:

This examples what was happening in Camden yesterday on my way home. When I see dragons nowadays I generally put it all down to a misspent youth as an Art Student.

Year Of The Tiger
1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998
Tiger people are sensitive, given to deep thinking, capable of great sympathy. They can be extremely short-tempered, however. Other people have great respect for them, but sometimes tiger people come into conflict with older people or those in authority. sometimes Tiger people cannot make up their minds, which can result in a poor, hasty decision or a sound decision arrived at too late. They are suspicious of others, but they are courageous and powerful. Tigers are most compatible with Horses, Dragons, and Dogs

Positive and Negative Capability

Positive: The Tiger can be lovable, alluring, warm-hearted, altruistic, honourable, hard-working, pleasant, independent, engaging, dynamic and idealist sweetie pies.

Negative: The Tiger can also be rash, hot-headed, reckless, infatuated, quarrelsome, caustic, moody, predatory, rebellious, disobedient and irreverent rascals.

Keep in mind that the Chinese calendar doesn't start on January 1st. So, if you were born between January 1st and mid-February, your zodiac animal might be for the previous year. ;)
