Dancing in the Street Like a Dragon

The Chinese dragon dance is another exciting way to celebrate the New Year.
A couple of days ago we met Chinese New Year lion dancing. One of the other most popular things to do to celebrate Chinese New Year is to join your neighbors in the street to enjoy the very popular “dragon dance.” In this extremely festive Chinese dance, between several and several dozen people parade in the street together holding a colorful dragon above their heads on poles. It’s electric! Watch this video and you see what we mean. (There are no dragons in China, by the way, so this is pure symbolism.)
