Just today, thanks to a Filipino-Chinese friend, I was able to confirm I was born in the year of the Dragon! So cool as compared to being born on some year of a rat or a pig or some monkey.
I was born in the year of the Dragon!
THE FIRE DRAGON 1916 AND 1976 (Quotation Source)
The Fire Dragon is a powerful force to be reckoned with. This is a Dragon doubled! The Fire Dragon can move from calm and collected to combustible in a matter of seconds. In some ways the Fire Dragon is his or her own worst enemy. These Dragons cannot help feeling they are valuable and all-knowing. When they are right their vehemence and vigor is an asset to the cause, and though they value objectivity, they do not always employ the best decision-making measures, and sometimes jump to the wrong conclusion. They also suffer from recklessness and quick tempers. Yet, when they do keep their temper, emotions, and rivaling spirit under control, they emanate a commanding influence on other people.
So even though I was born in 1977. I am counted towards 1976 because the Chinese New Year was after my birthday.
