On February 10, 2024, the Asian community will celebrate the Lunar New Year, 4722 on Chinese calendars, which is Year of the Dragon.
The dragon is the fifth animal of the Chinese Zodiac. The Dragon symbolizes power, nobleness, honor, luck, and success in traditional Chinese culture. People born in the Year of the Dragon are gifted with innate courage, tenacity, and intelligence. Dragons are enthusiastic and confident. However, Dragons are sometimes regarded as aggressive, and angry Dragons are not open to criticism. They don't consider themselves irritating and arrogant. Instead of following tradition, they strive for a smooth future.
Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, while some may celebrate up to a month.
