Happy Chinese New Year!

February 19, 2015, In: Freebies, Occasion


Welcome year of the ram/goat/sheep. People born in this year are believed to be kindhearted, sympathetic, mild-mannered, gentle, stable, with a strong sense of justice. They are strong creativity, persevere, and acquire professional skills well. They look gentle on the surface, but are tough inside. They enjoy being in groups, but do not want to be the center of attention.

Years of the ram/goat/sheep: 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015

Lucky colors: purple, red, and brown.
Lucky numbers: 2 and 7 or numbers containing 2 and 7 like 27 and 72.
Lucky months: August and November.
Lucky flowers: carnations and primroses
Lucky direction: North

Which one is it, ram… goat… sheep? Apparently it depends on who you ask. “Yang,” which is a generic term for various horned mammals, was the original Chinese word for this year. Ram, goat and sheep are all correct. I thought a ram would be fun to draw, so we’ll go with that adorable “yang.”

If you phone is running iOS7 it’s probably creating a parallax effect on your wallpaper. Which means it wants the wallpaper to be larger than your screen and won’t let you scale your wallpaper down. To switch the parallax effect off go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion > and turn ON the Reduce Motion switch. Tip via iGeeksBlog.com.
