Happy Chinese New Year 2010 - Year of the Tiger

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright,
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry? - William Blake

2010 is year of the Tiger in the Chinese calendar so why not celebrate in a tiger way.

Why not:
♥ Adopt at tiger with the World Wildlife Fund
♥ Dress Up in a cute tiger costume
♥ Paint your nails tiger print
♥ Bake some tiger bread
♥ Make your own tiger inspired jewellery - maybe out of tiger's eye
♥ Do your eye make up like a tiger
♥ Eat some Chinese food accompanied by a tiger beer
♥ Brighten up your home with a bunch of tiger lilies
♥ Read a tiger inspired book like Tiger by Jeff Stone

What does the year of the tiger bring?

Based on the traits of the Tiger, Chinese astrologers predict 2010 will be a tumultuous year, but that there will nevertheless be an overarching sense of optimism around the hard work that people may endure. Some analysts believe this will have an effect in minimising the global financial crisis.

The year of the Tiger is often associated with upheaval and social change, but this may be favourable for Tigers themselves.

People born under this sign are said to be wildly lucky, courageous, honest and charming. They are also competitive, unpredictable, stubborn and spontaneous. Like the felines they represent, they trust their instincts and tend to land on their feet.

Famous Tigers: Sir David Attenborough, Agatha Christie, H.G Wells, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Roberta Flack, Jodie Foster, Stevie Wonder, Sir Alec Guinness, Hugh Hefner, Dylan Thomas, Marilyn Monroe, John Stewart, Karl Marx, Queen Elizabeth II and Demi Moore. Gung how fat choy (Happy New Year!) dear readers ... x
