Enter the Dragon

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

The oldest and most important festival in China is called the Spring Festival. otherwise known as Chinese New Year.

The Spring Festival celebrates the Earth coming back to life and the beginning of plowing and planting. Because the Chinese use a lunar calendar, the date of the Spring Festival changes each year. This year it falls on January 23, 2012.

At work this past Saturday, we had a plethora of Chinese celebrations (and egg tarts!) to help welcome the Year of the Dragon! 

Enter the Dragon.

I am a Monkey. Here is a quick description...

Monkeys will try anything once. To this vivacious lot, it’s all about enjoying life and living it to the fullest. They are uninhibited and simply do not care what others think of them. Monkeys outgrow that tendency early, so they possess a “devil may care” attitude throughout the rest of their life. If you are a Monkey’s friend, expect a lot of blissful craziness this year and hang on for dear life!
Monkeys appear to be perpetually jovial. As a matter of fact, others wonder if they ever experience a bad day. Monkey people are almost always upbeat and their happiness is contagious. If you need to be cheered up, call a Monkey. They generally have a funny story to relate and you will get off the phone feeling a lot better then when you got on. But, truth be told, what the Monkey shows to the world on the outside often has little to do with the anxiety he conceals on the inside. In spite of that uneasiness, the Monkey’s specialty is keeping friends happy and content. 
Oddly enough, that is pretty damn accurate. 

I am rather excited that Dragons get along marvellously with Monkeys (ME)! So this bodes well. 
Hoping my year is filled with power and good will and, well, money.
That would be preferable. 

Oh, and of course, here's hoping your year is prosperous too!! Here's to a new adventure.
