COLOURS for 2013

My family is celebrating Chinese New Year tomorrow and Mom has been planning what to cook for the reunion dinner since last week and she is enjoying her shopping a lot. We are having the big dinner today as it is the eve of CNY.  Oh, Dad's mom and Mom's parents are coming for dinner.

By the way, I overheard that this year is a BLACK WATER SNAKE YEAR.
Ugh! I never like snakes but I like all the festivals because Dad and Mom will stay at home with me. :)


Let's come to the main point.
I'd found out something very interesting yesterday and I wanted to share it with all of you. Some of Mom's friends are Feng Shui maniacs and they gave Mom some pretty colourful charts.

According to them, we all have our own auspicious colours which change every year and it depends on our Chinese zodiac signs. First of all, you should find out what you are first.

Mom said I'm an OX as I was born in 2009. I can't believe it! I mean I'm so dainty and cute. Ox??? Nah!!!

Have you got yours?

Your colours are 
Auspicious colours for 2013:

OMD!!! Mom has many LAME excuses of having some heavy shoppings again as she has to get some green, light green and yellow tops, blouses, jackets, pants, trousers, shirts, skirts, socks, shoes, slippers, FitFlop, handbags, slingbags, totes, purses... you name it she wants it.


The NO NO colours:
My poor mom was on the verge of breakdown after reading this because purple and red are her favourites. Oops!!!
The drama came to the climax when another friend gave her the Best FengShui colours chart.

Rat: Gold, Silver, White, Blue, Gray and Black
Ox: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, Brown
Tiger: Blue, Gray, Black, Green, Lime
Rabbit: Blue, Gray, Black, Green Lime
Dragon: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, Brown
Snake: Green, Lime, Red, Purple, Orange
Horse: Green, Lime, Red, Purple, Orange
Sheep: Red, Purple, Orange, Yellow, Brown
Monkey: Yellow, Brown, Gold, Silver, White
Rooster: Yellow, Brown, Gold, Silver, White
Dog: Red, Purple, Organe, Yellow, Brown
Pig: Gold, Silver, White, Blue, Gray, Black
After checking hers, she is completely confused now...

See! Her best colours for 2013 here are REDPURPLE, YELLOW and ... By the way, she is a baa baa baa...

Life is full of COLOURS, isn't it? 

Hope your colours bring you luck and success!!!


Btw, I'm afraid I might be busy celebrating the Spring Festival with my family for the next few days. Will catch up with all of you soon!

Last but not least, 
A Very Blessed Lunar New Year to all my Chinese friends!!!

This was so much fun and happy chinese new year!
Mom is upset. She happens to know that she is a SHEEP (but here on one chart it is a sheep, the other it is a goat!)...and they left her year off! Do they think that everyone born before 1975 is dead??????????!! lol Ironically Mom's fave color is GREEN and that is what she should wear according to the chart.
I am a PIG because I was born in 2007....
Barks and licks and love, Dakota

Dawn said...

That was fun....though your chart does not go far enough back for me! LOL! So I checked out Katie. She is a rooster! Of course she is!!! Happy Chinese New Year to you guys!!!

Chris and Ricky said...

Happy Chinese New Year to you all!

Helen said...

I'm a dog. :-) I like the colours in the second chart, the first seems kind of boring, black, grey and yellow.

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

those were great and spot on for mom she is a RAT (we always knew it ) she loves black blue and green - her most favorite colors and doesn't like red and yellow and that is exactly what the color wheel showed!!

Have a happy chinese new year:)

Hi Eva, I'm an Ox too - born in 2009 ;o) Mom said she guessed it - what a meanie! She is a monkey - and that's no surprise for me ;o) Thanks for the
colors of 2013 - mum just bought an orange bag - orange is the monkey-clor of the year :o) Have a wonderful New Year Party with yummy food ;o)

I'm a rabbit (so is Eve) and now I can't wear my red harness OR play with my favourite orange ball!!! This also means Eve can't wear her "Keep calm and walk the Shetland Sheepdog" hoodie because its red!!!
Ignoring all of this!
Happy Chinese New Year tommorow!

Happy New Year to you and yours, Eva! We're off to find out our sign and colors-thanks!

Mommy will have to read your blog post again later. She is trying to read it on a rainy Monday morning and it isn't making much sense to her. We will try again when it's not raining and when Mommy's brain actually wakes up! :)

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

We came back to your blog when we thought Mommy's brain would be working, last time we saw the chart was early on Monday. Unfortunately, Mommy still doesn't know how to read the chart. Thank dog I (Lassie) was born in 2009, the same like you, so you helped us figure it out.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

I had great fun reading this... first of all, I'm so old, I'm not covered by your chart. I had to look it up...I'm a dragon.

2nd... might I suggest to your chart makers that the current years be printed in the small type and older years be in the LARGE type... it's harder for us old folks to see!! LOL!

Finally, I'm happy to report my best colors are all my faves! Whoo Hooo!

Happy New Year!
