Guam - The Asian zodiac symbol for 2011 is the golden rabbit and tomorrow marks Chinese New Year, to be celebrated by Chinese on Guam and around the world. Chinese School of Guam and United Chinese Association of Guam president Michael Randall says the year of the golden rabbit only comes once every 60 years. 

It symbolizes graciousness, and good manners and those born in the year of the golden rabbit will shine in the fields of law and politics. "The person under the sign will lead a tranquil life enjoying peace and quiet and congenial environment. He is reserved and artistic and processes good judgment," he said.

Although tomorrow marks Chinese New Year, the Chinese Association of Guam will host the Golden Rabbit Gala at the PIC's pavilion on February 20.
