Chulet is not sure if it is the month of the wedding or it is just coincident that she receives 6 wedding invitations for the month of December 2009!!
4 of them are on the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th December alone.
Some also say that it is because next year (Chinese calendar) is the year of TIGER. Since it is the year ending with ‘0’ – 2010, it will be the Yang Metal Tiger. Very powerful and strong scary tiger.. :p Supposedly, the tiger and monkey never mix well. I wonder why? Hehehee..
Anyway, as you would guess by now, Yes – all the friends getting married are from the Monkey year. Hehehe.. But then, this does not mean that you won’t find some monkey-year ppl getting married. There is always a case of desperation (no choice – must get married) :p
And also many people which don’t place priority in the Chinese auspicious date calculation.
Of course, there are also some exceptions depending on your future husband and wife date of birth (note that for calculation, this should be the Chinese date also).
The Year of Ox 2009 ends when Chinese New Year starts. In 2010, it will be on the 14th February. (Valentine’s Day). Perhaps, there will a decline in the weddings for the Tiger year. We’ll just have to wait and see… (hmm.. if the demand is less, will this means that dinner venues and prices for weddings can be lower?) I hear that the cost of wedding is getting ridiculous nowadays..
Nevertheless, chulet is extremely happy for all her friends. Chulet prays that all of her friends will have a greatly blessed marriage.
