Today, merriment and festive eats mark the celebration of the Chinese new year to welcome the Year of the Wooden Sheep. Among all the 12 animals in the Chinese Zodiac, the sheep is the most meek and gentle. This characteristic often helps those born in this lunar year to make decisions based on careful deliberation of facts. Sheep people are compassionate, creative, easy to be around, and are generally resilient and easy to please.
