The Year of the Dragon

It is the Chinese Year of the Dragon. The most auspicious in the Chinese zodiac with many Chinese parents eager to have their one child born under this sign. Of the twelve zodiac animals, the Dragon is the only mythical creature making it extra special. Being a Dragon gives you strength and luck. My tweenager was born in the year 2000, making her a Golden Dragon with extra strength, passion and ambition. 

It is a privilege to be born in the year of the Dragon though, it is thought that one's zodiac year is an ominous year. In China, people will wear red as protection to avoid bad things happening to them in their zodiac year. A red cord with your zodiac charm around your wrist, or new red underwear is the custom.

I was happy to see, on arrival in my quiet little English country village, that there are plenty of Dragons around, to help protect my Golden Dragon in her zodiac year.

Of course she still has the red string with Dragon charm can't be too careful!
