I do ...In fact Chinese year 4709 begins on Jan. 23, 2012,in China's time zone and will end up on February 9,2013,some peoples state its the beginning of Chinese year 4710.
How ever dragon is a legendary creature and all legendary stories about Chinese dragons are from the sky, which means heaven in China,image of dragon is very mystic and people born under year of Dragon prefer enjoying outdoor activities rather than staying at home they are multi tasker.
Chinese Astrology is a balance theory of five elements,dragon contains metal,fire,earth,water and wood
but according to Chinese element astrology , 2012 is the Year of black water dragon.

i did, water dragon. the last time was in 2000, golden dragon, very rare and apparently it's lucky, or holy or something, to be born a golden dragon, so there was a mini baby boom in china in 2000. i'm not chinese and i don't celebrate it, but i do shop at asian malls [i'm an otaku, so i follow japanese trends and culture more than north american] so the mall has been decorated for it since january 10, or something like that. in the chinese zodiac everything means something, the colour, the element, and the animal, even down to the sun and moon i think, all giving you a long details horiscope that many say is extremely accurate. normally i just read the place-matts at chinese restaurants lol, but i agree with half of the stuff said.
