Chinese people around the world are currently celebrating their New Year.
2014 is the year of the Horse. Horses, in Chinese legend, are strong and stable (much like good forklifts) and have a strong ability to make decisions (just like some of the industry leaders). People born this year will be great at interacting with others, and will succeed personally and professionally. Hopefully, some of that will rub off onto all of us.
On behalf of all at Forkliftaction.com, Gong xi fa cai 恭喜发财
