Its a rare occasion for two celebrations to be celebrated in one day. I heard Chinese New Year celebrated along with Hari Raya, but this time the Tiger has teamed up with Cupid to make a double whammy of prosperity and love in one day.
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2010 is the Year of a Golden Tiger, which begins on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011. It is the start of the Golden Tiger Year(some say its the White Tiger Year).
Tiger revered by the ancient Chinese as the sign that wards off the three main disasters of a household: fire, thieves and ghosts. On New Year’s day itself, it is beneficial to celebrate, to be happy, to have smiling faces, and to refrain from scowling, quarreling, or criticizing anyone.
The Year of the Tiger, and its also my year too,
In Feng Shui, it is one of the four celestial animals where it takes its place as the White Tiger. The other three celestial animals are the Green Dragon, Red Phoenix and Black Tortoise. Ancient Chinese believe that the markings on the forehead of tigers resemble the Chinese character for “Wang”, or King.
In Imperial China, where the dragon is the insignia of the emperors, the tiger is the military emblem of the highest supreme commanders of the army symbolizing fearlessness and victory. The Tiger also represents earth, while the dragon represents Heaven. The powerful and stealth prowess of the Tiger inspire the martial art movements of many Kung-Fu masters.
So, what will you do for Valentine’s Day? Do give a more meaningful gift rather than just giving sex or same old gift to your partner/spouse, seriously. Go on a date, have a dinner or do something worth to be remembered. And what about Chinese New Year? Have a great day visiting friends, don’t just sit at home watching Astro.
For long time lovers out there, this day may be the best time to see how good are their relationship, good to go for the “Next Level” or not. A simple “trap” as mentioned by fellow blogger, Amanda in her blog post.
Wrapping things up, Tom Rungitom wishes the netizens and fellow bloggers,
