Ox Years - 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997
“People born in the Year of the Ox are patient, speak little, and inspire confidence in others. They tend, however, to be eccentric, and bigoted, and they anger easily. They have fierce tempers and although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. Ox people are mentally and physically alert. Generally easy-going, they can be remarkably stubborn, and they hate to fail or be opposed. They are most compatible with Snake, Rooster, and Rat people.”
Another report on Oxen:
Here in Beijing, I hung out with my friend Sunny Oh and her beautiful mama who cooked up all kinds of Korean specialties for us to enjoy. We played a Korean game called Yute, which my team won! The losing team had to venture on to the cold Beijing streets to procure fireworks for set off at midnight.
Beijing felt like a war zone come midnight, minus the bloodshed of course. There were fireworks being set off EVERYWHERE! Big ones, small ones, loud ones, quiet ones. The skies were ablaze with shining shows of the celebration fireworks, the air thick with smoke and sparks.
As my taxi wove through the streets not long after midnight, we took a few fireworks hits, however driver was unfazed, driving through the chaos.
I can tell you, if the ghosts and spirits weren't scared away by these fireworks - I was!
