|THE CHINESE ZODIAC SIGNS
last weekend, we were invited to attend a chinese wedding reception. it was very nice and the chinese culture was really done on this wedding including the reception that followed. lots of the family members are in Red color and black outfit.
the dinner was a LAURIAT, having more than six main entries to eat and consume during the course of the evening meals. but what really strikes me most is when you arrive at the venue and approach the receptionist at the entrance of the reception---- the receptionist will ask you if you want to tell her the year of each guest birth and in turn the receptionist gives out a colored picture of the animal that represents each guest Zodiac at the back of the pictured animal. so i quoted all the Zodiacs that i have seen and collected. i don't believe in Horoscope --- but this Chinese Zodiac has stricken a chord in me.
