Today is City Daily Photo Theme Day. I captured this photo from my TV screen while I was watching the live telecast of The Royal Wedding on 29 April 2011 at 6.13pm local time. I choose this as my Photo of The Year 2011.
I was enchanted with this fairy tale wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton and I sincerely wish that they will have a "..... and they lived happily ever after" ending. I like the way he held her hand as they looked into each others' eyes and how everyone else were so happy for them. It shows here, don't you think so?
Do you know that in a Year of The Rabbit, many Chinese couples tie the knot. 2011 happened to be such a year, hence there were many weddings in 2011 with restaurants and venues fully booked. This is because it is hoped that the following year will bring forth a Dragon baby which is good news for parents and grandparents. It is believed that a dragon child, especially a dragon baby boy will bring instant good chi and hence lots of good luck and fortune to the blessed family.
2012 is the Year of The Dragon. It is expected that there will be a baby boom, to be followed a few years later with high enrollment in kindergartens, schools and colleges, making it very competitive among dragon children.
Happy New Year 2012!
