2024 marks the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. In Chinese culture, the dragon (or Loong), one of the totems of Chinese civilization, is a symbol of auspiciousness, authority, and rarity.
There are many traditional Chinese idioms related to the dragon, or Loong, such as lóng mǎ jīng shén (as full of energy as a dragon horse), lóng fèng chéng xiáng (auspicious and joyful), wàng zǐ chéng lóng (Parents hold high hopes for their child), huà lóng diǎn jīng (to bring the painted Chinese dragon to life by putting in the pupils of its eyes), yú yuè lóng mén (a carp leaps over Longmen, a dangerous and high obstacle, to become a dragon).
We hope these idioms can inspire and encourage all of us to move forward in the new year and embrace a bright future. We wish you to live vigorously like a Chinese dragon and work energetically like a tiger.
