"CLOVERDALE REVEILLE, CLOVERDALE, CALIFORNIA , WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 2011 -- Page 9 Jason Chu, of Meridian Acupuncture, wishes Happy Chinese New Year to the community! Feb. 3 is the start of the Chinese lunar calendar for year 4709. The zodiac sign of this year is the rabbit. People born this year and also in 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939 or 1927 are born in the year of the rabbit. The rabbit symbolizes graciousness, sensitivity, and good manners. It has been said that people born in the year of the rabbit make good politicians and diplomats because of their considerate personalities and strong communication skills. Going into this year, we should strive to create a peaceful lifestyle so we may calmly deal with any issues that may arise. Focus on your home, family, security, and diplomacy.
