Welcome, one and all! Sit back, relax, grab a beer from the fridge.

Ahhhhh, now that’s more like it. I may be biased, being of the hare persuasion, but I’m more than a hair excited about finally settling back into my zodiac year. All of you other animals on the farm should be too.

I think we all experienced the wrath of the tiger last year. This year however, it’s time to party with the bunnies. You can expect to get a taste of the high life that we prefer to hop around in. Good fortune should be at an all time high, and hostility at an all time low. We bunnies are too busy enjoying good foods, wines, and company to meddle with death and destruction. After all, it’s what we fear most. Self preservation is amongst our specialties (along with persuasion, diplomacy, charm, and wit, of course···and perhaps arrogance.)

Don’t worry about the repercussions. Next year, you can have your rigid, rule loving way, you roosters. The fuzz will be out of our fur. And should they pester us this year, we’ll have plenty of easily acquired dough to pay our fines. It’s part-ty-time!

Don’t burn down the house, though, you dragons. We could easily get lazy and unproductive this year. That would just be too much of a shame. And besides, next year is your turn. Calm your jets.

According to Chinese mythology, there is a jade rabbit that lives in a beautiful jade castle on the moon, so as to keep her company. That’s because we make such excellent company. After all, we love to give advice and help out our friends, provided it suits us.

The year of the rabbit begins tonight, my friends. Come dance with us. Keep it going on into Friday, and enjoy some amazing wine and fun tunes at Bambu Batu for our monthly Art After Dark craft bazaar. Here’s to hare, and keep on’ hoppin’ on.

Song of the day
