"The best thing about 2009? It might make you nostalgic for 2008," he said. "2009 is the year of duct tape."
The year of duct tape? I much prefer the Asian lunar calendar names. Beginning Jan. 26, we will be in the Year of the Ox. In the Chinese lunar calendar, 2009 is 4706, the Year of the Ox, or Ji Chou.
People born in the Year of the Ox represent a sign of prosperity and are natural leaders who inspire others. Any guesses who might be an Ox personality? Yep, Barack Obama.
