Happy Niu Year! moo...moo...moo....

Happy Niu Year!

May this moo-moo year brings us joy, keep us in the pinkest of health and shower us with wealth!! :p

**"Niu" means an ox in Chinese and sounds similar to the English word "new". And people are using it creatively to wish relatives and friends a Happy New Year. The ox is one of the 12-year-cycle animals in the Chinese lunar calendar. It symbolizes prosperity through fortitude and hard work, and the passage of a particularly troublesome year explains people's love for the animal.
