Chinese New Year’s Day; the First Day of the Chinese Lunar Calendar
Saturday, January 28th 2017
The Year of the Rooster will be a powerful one, with no middle of the road when it comes to moving forward. This year, impressions count. You’ll want to look your best and be clear on your intentions concerning love, money, and business. Stick to practical and well-proven paths to ensure success, rather than risky ventures. In a Rooster Year, all of the Chinese animals can reap great rewards by tapping into Rooster traits. Loyalty, commitment, hard work, family values, and top-notch appearances are just some of the characteristics that will be rewarded this year.
Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has made a New Year postcard (see above) wishing all the Thai people happiness, and success in their lives. The postcard with her drawing of a rooster in yellow colour carries her handwritten verse sending well wishes to all Thai people this coming new year, Year of the Rooster, according to the Chinese zodiac. The card conveys well wishes in a verse that reads: “Rooster crows in the morning after the darkness has gone. The sunlight shines in the sky. The New Year comes with happiness. I wish all of you success in working, progress, while your good deeds will support you.”
