Dragons in Hollister

You'll find these two red dragons over the doorway to Cheung Sheng, the Chinese restaurant at the corner of Sixth and East Streets.

The dragon is "a symbol of power, strength, and good luck" in China, among other things, according to this Wikipedia article. As for the color red? To many Chinese people, this color symbolizes good luck, wealth, and prosperity. The dragon is also one of the twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac. 2012 is the year of the dragon.

Roaaaaaaar. Hmm, do dragons roar?
