Happy Chinese New Year!
Or should I say “Gong Xi Fa Ca!” It’s the traditional Chinese New Year greeting that means “Wishing you prosperity” in Mandarin.
Today, the 23rd of January 2012 is the first day of the Chinese New Year and will end on the 9th of February 2013. The day is a new moon day and is the first day of the first Chinese lunar month. 2012 is the year of The Dragon!
They say that you’re the sign of the Dragon if you’re born: 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988 and 2000. Famous Dragon People: Calista Flockhart, Colin Farrell, Courtney Cox, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock
The Dragon is a creature of myth and legend – it represents a Chinese emperor and great power. It is the ultimate auspicious symbol signifying power, success and happiness. May it bring everyone great luck. Hooray!!
