Welcome to the Year of the Rabbit, which will usher in a year of peace and moderation. It will be a chance to rest and catch up after the tumultuous Year of the Tiger.
Last year was quite a rollercoaster with lots of unrest in many areas of the world - rioting in Europe and clashes in the Middle East. Floods, hurricanes, avalanches, and volcano eruptions proved that even the weather was in discord.
So welcome to the Rabbit. The world could use a return to manners, civility and good taste.
I wish you all the best in this year.
