Chinese New Year! Yippee!

The Year of the Ox. So if you were born in 1973, 1961, 1949, the babies born in 4707 will join you in all your pulchritude. You share the qualities of patience, kindness, conservatism and stubbornness. Interesting combination in an infant. Might be good for the pets, some potential trouble for parents. The InfoPlease Almanac states that "Those born in ox years tend to be painters, engineers, and architects." Hide the crayons. All our books about the Chinese New Year are for children, except this one. The title kind of gives away the fact that this baby is for adults. Read: less fun, more elegant. Beautiful, in fact - in a mere 30 pages. Chinese New Year festivals : a picturesque monograph of the rites, ceremonies and observances in relation thereto Thereto! These people are not kidding around. Enjoy the New Year!
