If you didn’t already know, we are in the midst of all manner of celebration of the Chinese New Year and 2012 is a very special one: The Year of the Dragon. No, not the 1985 Mickey Rourke movie, but the luckiest year of the Chinese Zodiac.

This, too, made me smile. And not only on account of the pretty, sparkly things. Although they are awfully pretty…
May your Year of the Dragon be just as sparkly.
