People born in the Year of the Ox are strong, reliable, fair and conscientious, inspiring confidence in others. They are also calm, patient, methodical and can be trusted. Although they say little they can be very opinionated. They believe strongly in themselves, but are also stubborn and hate to fail or be challenged.So if you're looking for gifts or something for yourself, start the Lunar New Year in fine fettle form by simply choosing Lyre’s.
