Happy Chinese New Year!
This is the Year of the Dragon.
THE WATER DRAGON 1952 AND 2012
Water has a calming effect on the Dragon's fearless temperament. Water allows the Dragon to re-direct its enthusiasm, and makes him more perceptive of others. These Dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight like other Dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-to-eye with other people. However, their actions can go wrong if they do not research or if they do not finish one project before starting another.
This year it can be expected that the 2012 Year of Dragon would be a happy and joyful one especially for the Dragon people. It is also believed that the Dragon Year 2012 would bring for all of us good luck and charm.
We celebrated by inviting friends over for a celebration dinner. It may not have been the most traditional dinner. But it was good! Ribs, wings, rice, dumplings, steam buns, lettuce wraps, chicken chop suey... and fingerkilochi for dessert... we like to mix a bit of Mennonite in with our Chinese!
