What Chinese New Year sign are you?

Happy Chinese New Year!

Yes that is a picture of Craig

I need to dislaim this blog post at the very outset by stating this it is leeched directly from the one and only Craig in New York’s blog. Go check out his blog for the original. He being a convivial, friendly, charming and altogether eccentric type – said he didn’t mind me posting it.

Anyway, do tell me which animal sign you are and whether you can see resemblances in character trait or perhaps in the people whose animal sign you share!

I’m the year of the DRAGON and that bit about “you are eccentric and your life complex” was the obvious give away. If you were to believe close friends like Sheridan – a fiery temper and flighty nature might also be in the mix. Makes me shudder to think Sarah Palin has the same sign, though!!

Add yours

  1. I’m a dragon too, Milo, but from a much more distant decade than you of course. The personality traits are a long way off in my case and if anything, although I’m not into astrology either, my Cancer traits are more me.

    I’m ready for a Monkey or a Rat though as I’d have to think I’ve hit that ‘later in life’ bit !!

  2. Same post as Craig? Same comment as Craig. I’m a sheep, although when I was a child it was called The Ram. I think my mum might have made that up, but it kept me happy. Elegant? Of course. Creative? Extremely. Timid and anonymous? Now you’re talking out of your hat.

  3. What?! I’m thrilled to be the same sign as Sarah Palin. If all dragons have similar characteristics, that means we have a chance to be as hilarious and sexy as Sexy Sarah!

  4. I am a dog and the description pretty much fits me to a T. Maybe not the ‘works well with other’s’ part though.

    It tells me to stay away from the Dragon. Both men in my life are dragon’s. I don’t find the description for their sign to fit either of them at all.

    I’ll keep playing with Dragons and hope I don’t get burned. I never did listen well.

  5. Derek – I also like the sheep from Wallace & Grommit! The sheep has his own feature somewhere on the BBC website, too.

    Craig – thank you again!

    SCM – monkey and rat! Such unusual animals the Chinese picked!

    SB – I am a Dragon and a Taurus… nuff said!

    Sven – I like sheep.

    Ryan – I can see you as a rabbit for some reason.

    Mike – indeed!

    Enrico – indeed we do! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Debby – lol! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’m a Monkey and I don’t think I like it.. I don’t think the description fits me very well either . Sadly I don’t believe in any of it . Sometimes I wish I believed in God, or these Chinese years-of-whatever, or astrology, or something, as I think it makes things easier all round. Hey ho.

  7. Craig – indeed!

    Lula – LOL!

    Daphne – well put, I don’t tend to believe them much either! That said, Dragon and Taurus are ones I can’t complain about too much ๐Ÿ™‚
