The Chinese New Year begins January 31st. During Chinese New Year celebrations, the Dragon Dance is performed in parades and events to bring good luck in the year to come. It is an intricate dance where a group of people maneuver a wood or plastic dragon draped in cloth. It is believed that longer the dragon, the more luck it will bring. Some dragons used in these dances are 230 feet long!
