According to the Chinese calendar, the New Year begins January 26, 2009 and it’s the Year of the Ox. Translation? Prosperity will come by way of a little elbow grease. Compared to 2008’s Year of the Rat, 2009 will be more conservative and with a focus on traditions instead of the thrill of the new or the outrageous (think classic LBD instead of last season’s embellished mini). Take it slow and steady: the coming year promises stability and growth if you’re patient and diligent. Bottom line? It’s a year of taking care of business!
