Year of the Water Dragon

Introduction
Hazle studied Chinese calligraphy to paint the characters - as well as the rest of each ceramic. Messages such as Happy New Year and Good Luck vary from piece to piece.

 The dragon is 5th in the 12 year cycle and often seen as the most important. Dragon people are said to be brave, innovative and driven. Famous names include Hazle Boyles! Inner animals from three different beasts are said to give most accurate traits.

 Lucky wish cards are much given. Hazle’s Chinese wishes are in 22ct gold on the fascia or in black on the red doorway hangings.

The Chinese New Year
The calendar is based on lunar and solar movements. A lunar cycle is about 29.5 days. To catch up with the solar cycle another month is included every few years - like adding an extra day in Leap Year. So the New Year falls on a different date every year. Starting with the New Moon on the first day of the New Year, it ends on the Full Moon 15 days later. This 15th day is the Lantern Festival, celebrated at night with lantern displays and children carrying lanterns in a parade. Red money packets or Hongbao are given at social events such as New Year. Red signifies good luck and the sum given can end in an 8 for luck too.
