Chinese New Year - Celebrate the Year of the Dragon - 2012

January 14, 2012

Happy Chinese New Year!

2012 is the Year of the Dragon.

"Dragon, the spirit of divine entities, often represents the supreme position and symbolizes auspiciousness, authority and dignity. The dragon has the ability to soar and gallop anywhere it desired, so powerful that it plays a vital role in ancient Chinese mythology and becomes the most representative totem of Chinese people. It is also commonly used as a metaphor for a person with virtue and wisdom. Imperial palaces and temples' beams and pillars are often carved with dragons to imply promotion and prosperity." 

The New Year is a time to reflect and renew and perhaps find ways to embrace the spirit of the Dragon.
