Happy Lunar New Year!

To everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year Dr. Bui and the Orthobee Team wishes you a healthy and prosperous year!

Here is a brief history of the Lunar New Year and a brief forecast of what the Dragon year of 2012 holds:

The Lunar New Year traditionally lasts for 15 days, beginning on the first day of the first month within the Chinese calendar and ending on the date of the full moon.  This year, the new year starts today (January 23) and lasts until FebruarPublish Posty 6.
Despite often being known as 'Chinese' New Year, the annual celebration is recognised by other Asian populations worldwide, within countries such as Thailand and Singapore.
Today marks the start of the Year Of The Dragon.  The symbol of the dragon in ancient times is associated with the Chinese emperor and is considered to be an extremely auspicious sign.  Of the 12 symbols of the Chinese Zodiac, it is the only one that is not a real animal. Perhaps the most recognized image within Chinese culture, the dragon symbolizes power, strength and good luck. In contrast to European beliefs, where dragons are considered evil creatures, they are seen as having auspicious power and it is seen as positive.
