January 23th, 2012 marks the start of the Year of the Dragon on the Lunar Calendar. Known as Tết in Vietnam, it means the first morning of the first day of the new year.
In Asian culture, Dragon and Tiger are the most desirable born years of people, since the two creatures are believed to bring luck, strength, nobility, royalty, wisdom and promising future. Vietnam is not an exception. Moreover, the Dragon always ranks a little bit higher than the Tiger, since it has been the symbol of royal family for thousands of year because the Emperors believed that Dragon can protect their thrones and families with its fearsome strength and abilities.
Thus, 2012 is hoped to bring fortune for people: promotion, wealth, health, properties, good marriages and new children.
