Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy 4707! If there was every a time we needed a "Year of the Ox" it's right now. That's because "the Ox is thought to be the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work," and is a sign of power and modesty. Patience, dependability, achievement through steady focus--that's what this year is all about.

Although the Year of the Ox began on Monday January 26th (some may argue it began in a philosophical sense on Tuesday January 20th--but that's another story) this weekend is when Los Angeles' Chinatown gets down to the business of ringing in the New Year.
