Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year! In just a few days we will be celebrating the lunar new year that the Chinese community throughout the world follow. This is the year of the dragon, the only mythological animal among the twelve animals that represent the zodiac signs of the Chinese lunar calendar. The dragon represents power, wealth and wisdom. The Chinese believe that being born in the year of the dragon is auspicious. Many marriages are held right before the year of the dragon because couples want dragon babies. Little did I know about this but I think I was lucky because 24 years ago I gave birth to my son, a dragon boy. He is still working on his wealth and power but he's pretty wise for his age. They say that you have to be pregnant by May 2012 in order to have a dragon baby.

Remember those little give aways that the Honolulu Festival will be giving out to those first in line to enter the Hawaii Convention Center on March 3rd and 4th. This year the Honolulu Festival is creating a dragon decal, something new! You will only be able to get one of those at the Honolulu Festival so make sure to come early. It will definitely be worth waiting in line for. Please come and enjoy all aspects of this wonderful cultural event. Aloha and Kung Hee Fat Choy.
