February 7, 2008
Written by C.N.
You may have heard that today, February 7, 2008, is the Lunar New Year and the start of the Year of the Rat. For Vietnamese Americans such as myself, it is also the start of Tet, the Vietnamese New Year.
Read about some characteristics of people born under the Year of the Rat (those who turn 12, 24, 36, etc. from this day forward until one year from now) and a list of some famous “rats” at my article on Tet, a Celebration of Rebirth.
