Year of the rabbit

February 3rd marks the Chinese New Year – the year of the Rabbit. China has had an illustrious past with over 4,000 years of recorded history.

... Red is considered lucky
... Ice-cream, gunpowder & silk all originated in China
... 1 in 5 people live in China, that’s 1.3 billion people!

As the Chinese proverb says, may you live in interesting times. Or at the very least... may you read some interesting books!
