When you think Chinese New Year, what’s the first animal that comes to mind? My guess is that for many that would be a dragon. Possibly because that is an animal generally associated with China, next to the panda. Whereas I’d say the panda is a more modern symbol of China, dragons have played a part in China’s traditions for millennia.

Some people like me might have heard that China uses a different year count and is in the year 4000-something. But none of my Chinese colleagues and friends has ever heard of this. So what year is it now?

One of China’s most important holidays is coming up, and it is not without reason that it is called the Golden Week National Holiday. This is the birthday of the PRC (People's Republic of China), and not any birthday, this year we are celebrating the PRC’s 70th anniversary!
