Year of the Dragon:
A Great Year to Get Married

In addition to being National Pie Day, today also marks the start of Chinese New Year. According to the Chinese lunar calendar, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon—the most auspicious zodiac symbol—and feng shui experts say couples marrying this year can expect good fortune and luck in their marriage.

In 2012, experts say the best months to wed are February, June, and July; to determine if specific dates are favorable, consult a date-selection consultant (yes, they exist!) and a tong shu (Chinese almanac)—one online example can be found here. Happy New Year! —Heather Lee
