Year of dragon 2012 (Yang Water)

Today is the 1st day of the year of dragon.
Unlike western calendars, the Chinese calendar has names that are repeated every 60 years. 
Within the 'Stem-Branch' system is shorter cycle of 12 years denoted by animals:
2012 is the year of the Dragon. 
It is the rén-chén 壬辰 year (Water Dragon).  
Rén (Water) is the ninth of the ten celestial stems and chén (Dragon) is the fifth of the twelve terrestrial branches and marks the year of the Dragon. 
More info see Chinese astrology -Wiki

My favorite and MUST EAT every new year - Sashimi salad / Yusheng
