Year Of The Dragon: Welcome 2012

2012 Year of the Dragon

The Chinese New Year is the most celebrated event in Chinese culture. This Year, Chinese New Year starts on January 23rd and lasts 15 days. The festivities end on the 15th day with the Lantern Festival, a celebration of light.

The Chinese calendar is lunar based, so this holiday is often called the Lunar New Year. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as chú xī (除夕). It literally means “Year-pass Eve,” and is also a festive time just like the New Years Eve we have in the States. 2012 is the year of the dragon according to the Chinese Zodiac.

Chinese dragons are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology and folklore. In contrast to the ‘evil’ European dragons, Chinese dragons traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, hurricane, and floods. The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck. With this, the Emperor of China usually uses the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power.

Means Dragon.

Red is also very important to the Chinese New Year because of it’s legendary ability to fight off evil. If you’re throwing a Chinese New Year party, use lots of red decorations. Yellow and gold decorations are also used for this celebration because it symbolizes luck and prosperity. A beautiful and easy way to decorate for Chinese New Year is with flowers! Order a variety of unique flowers in bright red and yellow with gold ribbon.

Ring In The New Year With Flowers

Your New Years Eve party is not complete with out a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. Flowers remind us of bright and happier times ahead, and will set your New Year off on the right foot! Choose a New Years flower arrangement to match your party theme, or go with the traditional New Years colors of silver and gold.

Circles are also a traditional New Years symbol, signifying the year has come full circle. Use this theme while planning your party decor and food. Hang up wreaths with fresh flowers, silver and gold ribbon. Stars are also a great symbol to use at New Years. For one, it’s a midnight celebration and what better represents night than stars? But also stars have traditionally symbolized guidance, and more recently hopes and wishes.

If you are attending a New Years Eve party, stop by your local florists and pick up a beautiful New Years themed centerpiece for your hostess. She will be tickled pink, and you will all reap the benefits of having fresh flowers at your New Years party.

So here at FSN we WISH you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! May the next year bring you happiness and fortune!
