Let me guess: you partied your patooty off during Chinese New Year celebrations.
Yeah. Us too.
But before we go barreling into Dragon year, it’s fun to take a look back at the last Year of the Water Dragon we had in 1952 – some pretty crazy stuff happened.
For starters, The Greatest Show on Earth was one of the year’s top three movies. Queen Elizabeth took the throne. The birth control pill was invented. It’s no coincidence all these things happened in Dragon year. Revolution is Dragon’s middle name!
What other amazing feats were accomplished? Well, let’s see. The US began construction of its first nuclear submarine (we’re not sure if it was yellow, probably not!). Oh yeah. And the microwave was invented. (Can you imagine a world without hot pockets or microwave popcorn?).
What else? Well, they invented a vaccine for polio, and the 1952 presidential election was the first to be televised. That is, if you could afford a TV. (Back then the idiot box cost bank!)
Amazing when you think of just how far people stretched their ideas and what the world was able to accomplish in a Dragon year. And that was all before the Internet!
What revolutionary changes will 2012 bring?
Wouldn’t you like to know.
Better get your Year of the Dragon report and find out what’s in store for your sign.
After all, maybe you’re the one who’s going to find that cure for cancer, babe. There’s no time to waste!
