Happy New Year! Good Luck and Prosperity in the Year Of The Ox!
新年好!   恭喜发财!   萬事如意! 牛年!


Let us hope this Year of the Ox is better than last Year of the Rat! This New Year has already been strange, in that Reunion Dinner last night was just my immediate family. Back home, of course, the annual Chūnyýn migration has been very heavily curtailed by government restrictions on travel. This is especially very tough on the millions of migrant workers unable to obtain residence permits in the cities where they work, who often only see their families and children at this annual festival. I'm sorry I've been so inactive here, but you are in my thoughts.

Happy New Year to you, too!

We are very pleased that even if occupied elsewhere, you never quite vanish from here.

Happy New Year!

And word on the not-vanishing!

Edit: Apparently, I'm a Water Ox? (June 8th, '73). Does this mean this is a good year for me?

Hey, we share an element! I am a Water Dog! Water personalities are supposed to be articulate, clever and introspective, self-contained and self-sufficient. We are penetrating, critical and scrutinising, seeking knowledge and understanding. We like to remain hidden, enigmatic and anonymous. :P

In Chinese astrology, there is not a simple "this is your year, so it will be lucky" thing. This year is supposed to be a generally lucky year, but the Ox has yin energy so we'll all have to make extra effort to accomplish anything, and we'll feel the weight of our responsibilities.

Here, for whatever it is worth, is a horoscope for Oxen in 2021.

I totally want to get the WoW mount for this year.  Not only because Iím a Taurus in the Western astrology thing, but because I think that my Tauren druid would look awesome riding one.

I am a dog - but unlike Akima, I am a fire dog.

Happy New Year to you as well.

I was born as a fire goat, which might explain stubborn anger.

Me neither, but it'd be a great name for a band.

Yeah.  I was thinking about monkeys at metal shows when I typed that.
