The Year of the Dragon

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: January 23rd, 2012

Kung Hey Fat Choi! Happy Lunar New Year!  UK celebrates the year of the dragon in style at major events in London Trafalgar Square, China Towns across the UK or at home.  I am currently in HK celebrating and experiencing my first Lunar New Year, other than this I’ve witnessed a mass migration (in human history) headed towards the China border to celebrate with their loved ones at home.

Entertainment and customs such as the Lion dance, dragon dance, noisy fireworks, collecting red envelopes from rowdy relatives (elders and married couples only), play games and food.  Shops, streets and home decorated with richly decorated red lanterns, blossom trees using stuck with red envelopes, well-wishing calligraphy.

To those who were born in year of the Dragon, it will be a good year to improve yourself, take calculated investment risks and to build wealth.  Most important of all live well.
