Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
It is the year of the white tiger. An important financial year since white is linked to metal, one of the Chinese elements in the zodiac. Metal -> gold, money, etc.
I have no idea how predictions are made based on what element and animal you are, so I'll just leave it at that. I'm not superstitious anyway.
Nonetheless, I wish all the best to those who celebrate this important event. Let 2010 be a prosperous year!
