    Year of the Ox indeed.



    P.S.
    Be0, year of the ox doesn't mean you are allowed to do things to the poor oxen, hmm k?

    If most people celebrate new year's day on the first day of january, and the chinese celebrate theirs around this time of the year, then does that mean that the chinese live on a different timeline? lol

    Isn't it more that an ox is a castrated bull, and nothing else?

    So we really should let Be0 cheer them up.

    ..oxen is just the general name for domesticated cows, male or female.
    A steer is a castrated bull.

    And we eat mooncake during the harvest, not New Year.
    New Year is time for lion dances.
    And new clothes.
    And lots and lots of red.
