2010 is the Year of the Tiger (sorry, Mr. Woods). According to Wikipedia: The Tiger is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese Zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. So, that means YOU – people who were born in 1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998 and 2010.

According to 3DCranes, this “kanji”, or Chinese character, symbolizes “Tora,” the Japanese word meaning tiger, which is the Chinese Zodiac animal symbol for the year 2010:

In The Year of the Tiger – Tales from the Chinese Zodiac by Immedium, a princely cub befriends a human, the girl, Su, despite his parent’s warnings.  Can Teddy prove the jungle is big enough for both man and beast?

  2. Oh yay! I’m a Tiger born in 1974! Does that mean I’m going to rock it in 2010?! I hope so!
