The Rabbit is one of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac — the rest of the zodiac are coming soon! In the background is the Chinese character for the Rabbit.

Those born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be gracious, cultured, intellectual, and detail-oriented. They may be very sensitive — sometimes to the point of nervousness — but this also makes them compassionate and attentive to those around them, and they like to make their homes comfortable and peaceful.

You are probably a Rabbit if you were born in 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963, 1951, 1939, or 1927, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. Wikipedia’s Chinese Zodiac page is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.

    Of corse I ment the Cancer Crab.I used to have bunnies.Sweetest little things,but a bit messy.

  • LOL… that makes MUCH more sense! oh yes, I have a friend with bunnies, so I know how that goes… she’s had them for years but only one is left and she’ll be taking an indefinite break from them AND their mess (still has her guinea pigs tho, but they’re a bit easier to manage!)

    Beautiful! We’ve been watching Jackie Chan’s Adventures here at my house and so this has a fun, character-like meaning for me as well as more traditional influence.

  • Thank you, glad you like it! I remember that show, it’s a fun one. :)
