I'm really looking forwards to Sunday, when the Chinese quarter are having their New Year celebrations. It'll be my first experience of Chinese culture. There's also another parade the week after! I like that Chinese New Year lasts longer than Gregorian New Year.

No no. We gotta have babies. Eat some lettuce. Give each other myxomatosis and die twitching and blind whilst our babies have babies with each other.

Oh great. It depends when Chinese New Year falls on the year of your birth, and my birthday is sometimes on Chinese New Year and sometimes not. So some years I have had two birthdays and sometimes none!

I have no idea where Wikipedia gets the association between Chinese zodiac animals and countries*, but it is rather cool that mine is associated with Australia, my adopted home.

*I know the USA is regarded as a Fire Monkey because it was "born" on 4th July 1776, but how it works for countries without a definite birth date, I do not know. Neither of the potential offical birthdays of Australia as a nation (Federation in 1901, foundation of the first British colony in 1788) falls in a Dog year, and of course nobody knows in what year the land was first settled by Aboriginal Australians.
