Ringing in the Year of the Dragon

by webdev

January 24, 2012

The Chinese New Year may not be designated as a U.S. national holiday, but it is still a wonderful tradition to celebrate. Because the holiday falls on a Monday, many people rang it in over the weekend, but the festivities can continue all week long.

New York Times blogger KJ Dell'Antonia celebrated the day with her young children, making Chinese dumplings. Rolling out the dough and preparing the filling were mom's jobs, while the children tucked the meat into the doughy pockets - the step that also traditionally involves sealing the luck into the tasty snack.

In China, the Lunar New Year is the most important date on the calendar. Other countries celebrate this holiday as well, but in their own different ways.

There are a number of ways to say farewell to the Year of the Rabbit and ring in the Year of the Dragon. Send flowers to a loved one, no matter their heritage, to spread some cheer on this traditional holiday. An oriental-inspired arrangement like Teleflora's Exotic Grace might be a good choice, or orchid plants like the Imagination Blooms with Cymbidium Orchids.
