We’ve officially entered into the Year of the Dragon. Many Eastern cultures consider this to be an extremely exciting time as the mythical dragon is associated with luck, prosperity, and fortune. Because of this, there’s usually an increase in birth rate in Asian countries when the year of the Dragon rolls around. The Philippines is no exception, given that our country is a melting pot of different cultures, including our Filipino-Chinese or “Fil-Chi” community.

Babies born under the year of the Dragon are considered to be lucky and destined for greatness, among many other positive adjectives associated with this particular zodiac animal. Are you one of the many couples who are hoping to have a baby born within the year of the Dragon? If you are, here are some nursery color recommendations based on the Dragon’s lucky hue for 2024.

Did you know that there are elements within the Chinese Zodiac? Depending on the particular year you were born in, you can fall under any of the following elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. The dragons of 2024 are associated with the wood element. So, it does make a lot of sense that the best nursery color for Dragon babies is an organic hue, like green!
