Chinese New Year - Dragon Dance

video

The Dragon Dance

Dragons are of course legendary animals, but they are important to Chinese people who think of dragons as helpful, friendly creatures. They are linked to good luck, long life and wisdom. They have special powers so they can fly in the air, swim in the sea and walk on land.  Dragon dances are performed at Chinese New Year to scare away evil spirits.
