Happy Chinese New Year: Year of the Dragon

“Xin Nian Kuai Le”

On January 23rd 2012, Chinese people all over the world celebrates the beginning of the Year of the Dragon. While Dragons are mythological creatures feared by westerners for their power, in Asia the Dragon is seen as a symbol of good fortune and a master of authority. 

Among the many predictions out there, this year is thought to be a year of courage, prosperity, love and cooperation that will bring changes and good fortune, so let's cheer to that! :)

If you live in the California Bay Area, on February 11th, you can enjoy the Chinese New Year parade, in San Francisco's Chinatown, which boasts the largest Chinese New Year celebration outside of Asia.

龙年吉祥  (Lóng nián jíxiáng!)
Good Luck in the Year of the Dragon!
