Hello everyone
 
I enjoyed this story and have been learning about the year of the Rabbit.
Those born under this sign are affectionate, talented, obliging, always pleasant, valuing security and tranquility. They have a tendency to get too sentimental and superficial and to avoid conflict and emotional involvement. Being cautious and conservative, they usually take no risk and are successful in business. They would also make a good lawyer, diplomat, or actor. Their best life partners are Sheep or Pigs instead of Roosters.
 
I was born in the year of the Sheep and so we make good friends to rabbits!
