Happy Chinese New Year

This post is in honor of my friends in Taiwan, Hong Kong and all over Asia who celebrate Chinese New Year. The new 2012 is "The year of the Dragon" which is a year for great deeds, innovative ideas and is considered a highly advantageous time to begin new projects in business. It is believed that this year will bring financial success!  During this year we should be bold and not humble.

The Chinese believe the dragon brings happiness and success to all good and honest people, and those who have great talent.  It is also favorable to start a family, give birth--so a baby boom is anticipated in many parts of Asia this year.

The dragon is of course a mythological creature which is a symbol of good fortune and sign of intense power, the Oriental Dragon is regarded as a divine beast and not a bad monster that is often slayed in video games. In Eastern philosophy, the Dragon is believed to bring good fortune. For the Chinese, the Dragon is the imperial symbol, the sign of the emperor. The Dragon is the symbol of power and wealth. The Chinese also believe the Dragon is a karmic animal which returns positive energy you give to other people, so go forit and be nice to others this year.
