Or Bingxu in Chinese, years are named in 60-year cycles with the name of the year repeated every 60-years. This year is the seventh year of the 60 year cycle. This year will be the year 4703. Interesting fact: Did you know that 2004 was a leap year? I don't mean just one day added to the year but according to the lunar calendar a month is added sometime around the second month of the lunar new year. ...and where was my extra pay check!

Digital paper cutout. The new age of an ancient Japanese craft, kirie (切り絵), originally Chinese. The idea is by no means original, a search will probably identify hundreds of sites.
I couldn't wait until next week, January 29th so I had to post it now, well more to come later. I suppose, that means I better get working.
