HAPPY New Year everyone!
The year of 2014 is the Year of the Horse in the Chinese lunar calendar (农历). Horses have been good friends of humans for a long time. In the past, horses were good helpers in farming and transportation (农业与运输). Today people ride horses for fun.
Ride into a new year ? According to the traditional Chinese lunar calendar, we’ll officially welcome the Year of the Horse following the arrival of Spring Festival on Jan 31. ? The horse has played an important role throughout human history all over the world. Horses were used for thousands of years as a means of transport, a weapon (武 器) of war and a plougher (拉犁用畜) of fields, but the horse was “more than just a vehicle – it had more character than a car, a tank or a tractor,” Clare Balding wrote for The Telegraph.
? In the Middle Ages in Western societies, the horse was a symbol of chivalry (骑士精神) and nobility (高贵). In fact, the word “chivalry” comes from “cheval” in Old French, which meant horse. The idea of chivalry helped to fashion the 19th-century concept of the “gentleman”, which was related to courtesy (礼貌), courage and loyalty to friends. ? Nowadays, because of economic development, people in Western societies are less likely to see or ride horses. People living in cities, in particular, hardly ever experience horses except through movies, paintings or books. But horse racing, and betting money on horse races, is still popular. The annual Kentucky Derby is one of the most popular sporting events in the US.
In the UK, the royal police still patrol (巡逻) on horseback and the Queen rides in a traditional horsedrawn carriage on “ceremonial occasions”. The significance of horses in the past is reflected in idioms still used in English today. For example, people still say “hold your horses” to mean “slow down”. If someone seems too proud, people might tell him or her to “get off [his or her] high horse”. And since horses are strong and energetic, there are expressions such as “as strong as a horse”, “workhorse” and “horsing around”.
? Interestingly, the horse also appears in many Chinese idioms, such as qianlima, which means a talented person. Other Chinese horse idioms include madaochenggong (instant success) and baimawangzi (prince charming). ? Besides their physical strengths, horses have powerful brains, possessing “excellent memories”, according to Discovery News. Maybe that’s why the Chinese idiom says: “An old horse never gets lost (老马识途)”. ? Since the horse is honored as a symbol of vigor, loyalty, persistence and intelligence, people born in the Year of the Horse are said to share such good qualities.
