It's the Year of the Seahorse!

I had an amusing 'argument' with my mother a few days ago.  We have a rabbit figurine that a friend sent us last year because it was the year of the Rabbit. I noticed it when my mother and I were tidying away Christmas decorations and the following conversation ensued:

Me: Oh, we should put this away as it's the year of the Dragon now.

Mother:  Dragon?  What are you talking about?  It's seahorse!

Me:  Haha! There's no year of the seahorse!

Mother: It's not 'ryuu', it's 'tatsu'.  It's a seahorse.

Then my mother looked up some calendars online which she was sure would be covered in seahorse pictures to celebrate the new year.  Of course, there were no seahorses - only dragons.  Sorry mother!
