Dragons have been a part of Asian culture for thousands of years. Unlike the fire-breathing villains of the West, Asian dragons are friendly and benevolent creatures that play a key role in celebrations, particularly Chinese New Year. The Spring Festival (Chun-jie) is a critical time of rebirth that signals the upcoming planting season and can always benefit from the dragon's wisdom, longevity and life-giving rain! As Chinese people began to immigrate to other parts of the world, the powerful dragon was sure to follow. Today, wherever Chinese communities exist around the globe, one can expect to see a dragon dancing in the streets sometime in January or February. This is certainly true of Canada where almost 5% of its population is Chinese. People join the spectacle waving flags and banners. Drums, cymbals, gongs and firecrackers keep evil spirits at bay as a coordinated team of dancers moves the dragon's long, serpentine body. Each person holds a section of its body atop a pole while the leader carries the “pearl of wisdom,” moving it up and down, to the left and right, for the dragon to follow as it weaves its way through the streets.

They can fly, swim under water and walk on land. They often combine the features of numerous animals, such as fish scales, horns and claws.Longer dragons are considered luckier than shorter ones. Dragons can range from a few metres to 100 metres in length.An odd number of joints in the dragon's body is considered auspicious. Usually, they have 9, 11, 13 or 29 joints.The dragon's body is often kept in a “dragon king temple,” and is only taken out on the day of the dance. At the end, the body is promptly returned to the temple while the tail and head are burned.
