2012 - Year of the Dragon
It's the Chinese zodiac calendar Year of the Dragon as I'm sure you know. The dragon is a positive symbol in Asian culture. Dragons are considered a symbol of power, strength, and good luck.
According to Chinese lore, the Year of the Dragon is an auspicious year to start a new business, among other things, and to enjoy good health and fortune. That doesn't sound too bad.
The last Year of the Dragon was 12 years ago. Remember the Y2K hype? The year 2000 was when we were seeing the first real adoption of E-commerce, basic Web pages, and blinking banner ads. Remember? Seems like so long ago.
Good luck and good fortune in 2012. May the Year of the Dragon symbolize prosperity for you.
