The Year of the dragon is the symbol of Good fortune in Chinese Astrology and aaccording to tradition the Dragon brings in the Four Blessings of the East: wealth, virtue, harmony and longevity. One thing that I'm not sure about, is if you have to be Chinese for these blessings to be yours too? I hope not as I'm hoping for a good year, as we all are.
My Good fortune came all too shortly to an end, as I had been planning on eating some Chinese food that night. Due to the amount of people all with the same plan, everywhere was fully booked and I couldn't get a table, not for all the Tea in china.
Well, I hope that the Year of the Dragon is a good one for you!
