The Year of the Horse officially rang in over the weekend with the Chinese New Year. Twitter was all Happy New Year! Wealth and prosperity for all! Hurry be happy!
Aaaand then came the Tesco jokes…

Not sure if ‘Year of the horse – special buffet’ is a great marketing idea.

It is Chinese Year of the Horse, or as McDonalds calls it, Year of the Big Mac.

Last year was the year of the horse at most supermarkets.

In case you were wondering “Gung Hay Fat Choy” either means “Post to eat Oh eye rolling Hayao” or “Best wishes and Congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year.” Google couldn’t make up it’s mind.
Either way, Happy Year of the Horse!
