According to Chinese lunar calendar, 2012 marks Ren-Chen Year, or the Year of the Dragon. Throughout the history of the Chinese nation, the dragon has been revered by the Chinese people as a cultural totem from generation to generation. In ancient times, the image of Chinese dragon served as a representation of power and prestige and an emblem symbolizing the traditional philosophy of integrating man and nature, while in modern days, it represents hardworking and unyielding spirit. Chinese dragon is an auspicious mythical creature that embodies people's good wishes and heartfelt blessings, exemplified by many famous idioms and phrases. "Dragon Sons, Phoenix Daughters," for example, conveys parents' high expectations. "Awesome Dragon and Formidable Tiger" represents infinite power. "Dragon-Horse Spirit" describes the extraordinary vigor and energy of the Chinese people. "Dotting the Eyes of the Dragon" implies strength and capacity. And, "Prosperity Brought by Dragon and Phoenix" expresses people's wish for lasting happiness.
