Gung Hai Fat Choy!

By
Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

This morning we were greeted by a few of our own (Left to right: Mike Stern, Steve Molitor, Steven Sims and Greg Schneider) making omelettes made to order for a good start to Chinese new years.

Gung Hai Fat Choy

This is the year of the dragon. 

People who are born in the year of the dragon share certain characteristics according to Chinese tradition.  They are considered innovative, and enterprising.  Somewhat flexible yet, self-assured and brave.  Passionate, and a bit conceited and tactless.  Scrutinizing and a little quick-tempered.

In addition to being the year of the dragon, this particular year (2012) is considered the year of the WATER dragon... which brings with it some additional modifying characteristics.  Water has a calming effect on the Dragon's temperament and allows the dragon to redirect his enthusiasm and more considerate.  The Water Dragon is better equipped to consider before action and invokes the art of patience into an otherwise powerful icon.

All of this bodes well for a passionate, patient and powerful year.  Gung Hai Fat Choy!

Thanks for the information on the Chinese New Year. I do know one place in the USA the Chinese like to celebrate and that is Las Vegas. They party hard in Vegas this week.
