Tomorrow is the Chinese New Year and this year is the year of the Dragon! The Dragon occupies the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, it is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. If you would like to learn a little more just click here.

Wow! Awesome dragon design!
Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快樂
