We are celebrating the year of the Rabbit this year.   

In Chinese mythology, the Rabbit is a symbol of endurance and their essence is said to have originated from the Moon. During the Chinese mid-Autumn festival when the Moon is usually at its best, Chinese children still carry lit paper lanterns made in the form of a Rabbit, and climb the hills to look at the Moon and admire the Moon Hare.

The year of the Rabbit is a peaceful year, very much welcomed and desired after the fierce year of the Tiger. We should go somewhere tranquil and get some well deserved rest after all the encounters of the year before. Good taste and enhancement will excel on everything, and persons will recognize that influence is better than force. A time to make sure that we do not become too indulgent. The influence of the Rabbit tends to spoil those who like too much comfort and therefore weakens their value and sense of responsibility. –www.yearoftherabbit.info

Instead of having a traditional Chinese lunch this year, WRECO staff ventured to the Kobe Japan Restaurant in Pleasant Hill for some teppanyaki action.  We were all entertained by the exciting and flaming presentation, and we look forward to another great year ahead.

2010 is the year of the golden tiger.  The tiger is a sign of courage and is revered by the ancient Chinese as the sign that wards off the three main disasters of a household: fire, thieves and ghosts.

To celebrate the Chinese New Year, the WRECO team met up at Szechwan Restaurant in the City of Orinda.  We enjoyed our lunch hour with an assortment of appetizing entrees and laughter of coworkers.  

It was a great way to start off the new lunar year, and we hope this year will be a great one. Happy New Year!
