    Since I'm actually celebrating Chinese New Year, I thought of sharing our office decor as we welcome the Year of Snake.

    I actually think the coming year is Snake, not Dragon.

    It is, but parades always have dragons that resemble the animal of the year.

    Chinese see dragons as an animal that brings prosperity so they are always there every Chinese New Year regardless of what year it is.

    Hi.

    Please be kind? I drew this Chinese New Year dragon to wish all people who celebrate Chinese New Year to have a SitePoint happy dragon bringing them health, happiness, and good will

    Here it is:

    Cool, of course since it isn't a photo it isn't eligible to be judged in the challenge but nonetheless, COOL!

    No, sorry I should have put it in that post that I did not expect to be in the Photo contest with it. Our city doesn't have a Chinese parade for New Years so unless I travel to a Chinese New Year's festival, it is unlikely that I will be able to enter a photo, so the drawing is about what I can do

    Thank you!

    No need to be sorry! I'm glad you shared it! Thank you! Just wanted all to know that our photo challenges are open only to photos. People can post any relevant images they like and the two posted of Dragons are great (i'm partial to dragons!), but for our 'challengers' rest assured that only your photos will be in the poll!

    No Chinese dragons so here's one from Carnival, which happened here a couple weeks ago.

    I've always admired the way the Chinese use oranges and reds.They really know how to make colors "pop" balloons or not!

    Stop the bus! Unfortunately we've run out of stock of coffee mugs so I'm afraid it's going to have to be eBooks. Apologies if I'm breaking any hearts!
