We have finally entered the last month of the year. So in preparation for the coming year, let us look at what the year 2012 has to offer. The year 2012 will be a leap year starting on Sunday in the Gregorian calendar. The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, highlighting the contribution of cooperatives to socio-economic development, in particular recognizing their impact on poverty reduction, employment generation and social integration. It has also been designated as the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All.–Wikipedia
Aside from that, there are also various popular beliefs about the year 2012. These beliefs range from the spiritually transformative to the apocalyptic, and center upon various interpretations of the Meso-American Long Count calendar. Contemporary scientists have disputed the apocalyptic versions.
Meanwhile, in the Chinese calendar, 2012 is the year of the dragon and thus, considered as special and lucky. This is because in Chinese astrology, the dragon is considered as a powerful almighty king because it is made up of different parts of animals such as a tiger, fish, snake and an eagle. In Chinese culture, the dragon is a symbol of power, superiority and rule.
To welcome and celebrate this coming year, here are 35 fascinating new year wallpapers whose themes center around these popular beliefs about the year 2012. We all thank everyone for you continued support to Best Design Options. Have a prosperous new year to all!
