Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Lunar New Year!

This is my latest self-promotional postcard, the sixth in the 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle. I'm halfway through!

I was very busy during the second half of 2003, and ran out of time to do a Christmas mailing to my clients. I was in a panic. My level-headed wife suggested a Chinese New Year's card instead. It would allow me an extra month to work on it, at a time of year that's usually slower. Besides, we'd been celebrating this holiday with friends for a long time. So, in early 2004 I sent out a Year of the Monkey card, and once I'd started, my obsessive nature forced me to continue for the whole cycle.

I'll be mailing my Year of the Goat (or sheep, or ram) card in early 2015.

This Lunar Year, 4047, begins on January 26, 2009.

Nice work! Anything that reminds people that there are other cultures is good stuff.

Great postcard, Wayno!

Interesting how 09 OX is like "nine, ten" as well!

Off to party like 4707!
