Welcome to the Chinese New Year Hop, brought to you by How Was Your Day?  2012 is the Year of the Dragon!
The Dragon is a sacred symbol in Chinese astrology.  A dragon is symbolic of power and superiority, rather than a threatening symbol.  People born under the sign of the dragon are special, considered widely to be strong and wise.
