Welcome to The Year of The Goat

Year of the goat

Goat, Ram, Sheep, Ewe, I think it just depends on where you live and what connotations go with those animals. Goat? Maybe not too many people like to be called a goat, unless their acting it.

Year of the ram

So 2015 is the Year of the Ram in Chinese zodiac. Sheep are seen as auspicious animals so this year heralds a year of prosperity and promise. Yay! Goats are described as peace loving and kind  animals and couldn’t the world do with a large, healthy dose of that at the moment? Here’s hoping.

Timber Goat's Head

So how will you bring a bit of goat or ram into your home decor to give a nod to the Lunar New Year? You could invest in this wooden goat’s head for your wall. Although I’m not so sure about the colour.

The Goring

What about taking a cue from The Goring in London and putting a sheep in every bedroom? Or perhaps you’re saving up (or already own) a Lalanne Sheep just like Coco Chanel, Valentino and Marc Jacobs.

Whatever you do, Kung Hei Fat Choi, and bring on a year of peace and prosperity.
