Lunar Year of the Rabbit

Now that we've welcomed the New Year on 1 Jan, it's time to turn to the other New Year, the Lunar New Year which we will celebrate in slightly less than one month on 3 February. It's a special year for our family as Ashleigh turns 12 and my SIL also celebrates her birthday as a fellow Rabbit.

According to this US website, it says that
"Rabbits are private individuals, a bit introverted and withdrawn. People born into this sign would rather work behind-the-scenes instead of being the center of attention in any situation. Do not misunderstand…the Rabbit is not a recluse. In fact, he is a reasonably friendly individual who enjoys the company of a group of good friends whether at a business dinner or a holiday party. Rabbits just like to be a part of the gang as opposed to the leader of it". 

When I read what is written about the Rabbit child, I am in total agreement because it describes my Ashleigh. A sensitive girl who is close to her Mum and enjoys music.

Young Rabbits are very sensitive children. They tend to let their emotions get the best of them and will cry with no remorse. At school, these children often get teased for being so sensitive and become branded crybabies by other boys and girls. Rabbit children are especially close to their mothers and maintain a wonderfully close relationship with them throughout their lives. They depend on their mothers for advice and support and will reciprocate when necessary. Rabbit children are desperate for stability and routine and require a sort of scheduling to do their best work. Like the adult Rabbit, Rabbit children are likely to be quite interested in the arts, particularly in music, a subject in which most Rabbit children thrive.
