If you want to get lucky, this might be your year!  Asian New Year starts Jan. 23 with the year of the black dragon, considered one of the luckiest astrological signs.  In Chinese tradition, it's lucky to be married, born, or start a business this year.  Why is the Black Dragon so auspicious?  What foods are lucky to eat, and what traditions will people follow?  And why does the Strip deck itself out in red and gold everytime the holiday rolls around?  Celebrate with us as we ring in the Asian New Year!  Share your favorite memories of past New Years below.
