Welcome to the year of the dragon. I’m told that it’s an extra special year because it’s the year of the black dragon. I’m not exactly sure what that all means, just that it’s an extra special year.
I would also like to note that today’s lunar new year is celebrated by many people, not just the Chinese. I find it rather unenlightened to continue in this day and age of limitless information and technology for people to call it Chinese New Year. Even Google puts up Chinese New Year when I search for lunar new year. Well, at least Wikipedia didn’t totally forget about the other people that celebrate other new years. Now that I’ve let you all know this fact, please pass the word on. 🙂
