Year of the Dragon...2012 Chinese New Year...

Chinese New Year is one of the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. Doors and windows are covered in red, themes of wealth and longevity, and, of course, good fortune in general is wished and bestowed to all.  Everyone gets together for a big feast of pig, duck and delicacies on the Eve of the New Year.

2012 is the year of the dragon and that's a pretty big deal.  Well, at least in my opinion.

The dragon (in Eastern philosophy) represents power, strength, wisdom, and good fortune.  It is actually the deliverer of such things.

Some characteristics of the dragon personality are:

  • Innovative
  • Enterprising
  • Flexible
  • Self-assured
  • Brave
  • Passionate
  • Conceited
  • Tactless
  • Scrutinizing
  • Unanticipated
  • Quick-tempered

 The characteristics are further broken down by the element you were born under: metal, air, fire, or water. You can find more info on this stuff here.
