A fire year is extra special, yes? What other kinds of years are there?

No, your personal year begins (I'm pretty sure) with the New Year.
Otherwise, you get cheated (theoretically) out of several months of
good luck at the end (between August and the beginning of the Year of
the Ox)! Which, since it's only the Year of the Rat that's your Fire
Year, would kinda stink for you.
