IT WILL BE the Chinese Year of the Dragon a.k.a. the Salamander With Big Dreams in just about five hours’ time.

The Chinese New Year is for everyone, not just for the Chinese.

(Who says you can’t have two new years?)

Depending on your locale, it will be Chinese New Year at these times:

  • USA: 11am Eastern Standard Time, Sunday, 22 January
  • UK: 4pm GMT, Sunday, 22 January

(Congratulations on Your Fortune)

That’s how the Chinese dragon looks.

This is what a dragon looks like in real life:
