This year is the Year of the Goat (some people will say sheep). The discrepancy comes to play because the same word (symbol) means either goat or sheep in Chinese. Since Market Street is a yarn store we should probably go with year of the sheep, but since the goat is one of my favorite animals, I will probably stick with year of the goat. My love of goats started when I was quite young and increased immensely during the years I had a small herd of dairy goats. I won't go into their wonderful attributes here, but will skip back to sheep and the Chinese New Year.
People born in the Year of the Goat show great kindness and politeness. They are shy and sensitive and are said to love art.
