    This Windows 7 theme puts a parade of colorful Chinese dragons on your desktop.

Unlike their often vicious and destructive Western counterparts, Chinese dragons are generally benevolent creatures. In Asian cultures, dragons bring rain to parched lands and assure good luck and prosperity. Lunar New Year parades worldwide feature dancing dragons to bestow blessings upon everyone gathered. This Chinese Dragon Windows 7 theme features five striking photographs of colorful dragons, all provided courtesy the DeviantArt online community.

Member =c1a2t345's "Chinese Dragon" shows a striking profile, while tryphyna's Chinese Dragon gives us an evocative night scene. "Happy Chinese New Year" by rorshach13 (shown here) displays a dragon proudly leading the parade. "Vibrant Chinese Dragon" by corpakneazle and "Dragon Close Up" by TSLoire both highlight colorful close-ups.

Load up this free Chinese Dragon Windows 7 theme whenever you want some color on your desktop--but it's especially appropriate for any Lunar New Year celebration.

Note: To install the Windows 7 theme, just unzip the archive file and double-click the themepack within. Windows does the rest.
