Year of the Dragon


The lunar calendar says this is the year of the dragon. Suddenly there is a surge of pregnancies. To the Chinese, this is a very auspicious time to give birth – it’s great to have a dragon baby. Especially if it is a boy.

The not-so-good-side is that the already over-crowded hospitals will be stretched to bursting point. I dread to imagine how many will get the care they need…. or not get the care they need.

Meanwhile, I think I will need to stock up on gifts. Someone suggested that baby boy crib bedding sets would be a good gift. Excellent. But I think the better thing would be to combine together with some friends to get them! I can also foresee our purses and wallets being lightened by a great deal by year end!
