Year of the Dragon
2024 welcomes the Year of the Dragon and is celebrated across fifteen days of festivities from Saturday 10th February. As the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac, the Dragon is highly respected, and is a symbol of kindness, good fortune, ambition and honour. 2024 will be a year of transformation, growth, abundance and prosperity; everything will thrive.
During the Jade Emperor’s great race across the river, the Dragon was expected to come first, thanks to its excellent swimming skills. Along the way, the Dragon stopped to help some villagers, and to blow a gentle puff of air at the Rabbit, who was perched atop a floating log, to help it over the finish line. This was how he earned his admirable place as the fifth animal in the Chinese zodiac.
