Gong Xi Fa Cai 恭喜發財
Year of the Rooster
Saturday, January 28, 2017

The Rooster is tenth in the Chinese zodiac. People born in a year of the Rooster are very observant. Hardworking, resourceful, courageous, and talented, Roosters are very confident in themselves.

Roosters are always active, amusing, and popular within a crowd. Roosters are talkative, outspoken, frank, open, honest, and loyal individuals. They like to be the center of attention and always appear attractive and beautiful.

Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, whether at a party or just a social gathering. They enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charm on any occasion. People born in a year of the Rooster are typically healthy people.

The Rooster artwork is created by my good friend Peter Lee.  I am fortunate to receive a piece of his creative talents every Chinese New Year!  I am so excited to be able to share it with you this year.
