The Rooster is the symbol for the Chinese New Year of 2017. In searching for the spirit of the rooster, I discovered that the rooster symbolizes power and pride as he struts his stuff. Just looking at the demeanor of the rooster, I can see his absolute pride and self confidence. He symbolizes tenacity. A rooster will fight for his honor even if he has to die fighting. He has a fighting spirit and the tenacity to stick to his guns, oops, I mean his spurs until the deed is done. I like his fighting spirit. I can learn a lot from the rooster this year. Happy Chinese New Year!
