Around the world, hundreds of millions of people are readying themselves for one of the largest international celebrations – Chinese New Year.
Montegrappa, manufacturers of the worlds finest writing implements are joining the celebrations. The Italian luxury brand has introduced the Horse 2014 collection, a beautiful collection of both fountain pens and rollerballs for you to remember this auspicious time.
For those that are not familiar with what the Year of the Horse is, it’s the 7th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Horse’s fixed element is fire. The spirit of the horse is recognised as a crucial element of the Chinese people’s ethos: a quest for constant self-improvement. Those born in the Year of the Horse are intelligent, energetic, warm-hearted and able. Their ingenious communicating techniques, their delight in the limelight and a desire to entertain are embodied in such ‘Horse’ international superstars such as Ella Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand, Jackie Chan, Harrison Ford and Paul McCartney. Although occasionally boisterous, they are cheerful, talented and perceptive, and down-to-earth, if stubborn.
Horses are popular among friends, enthusiastic in their chosen fields and do not accept failure. Often impatient, they are devoted to their careers, and exhibit independence and … impatience. The Horse possesses great endurance but a short temper, can be flamboyant and may inhabit a world of glamour and celebrity.
