In Chinese society, it is believed that the lion dancing and firecrackers (on left side) can expel evil spirits and bring good luck. The proud and regal lion is the “king of beasts,” and lion dancing serves to drive away evil and bring positive energy and good luck. The look like heavenly lion is dressed in vibrant colors, has protective horns, bright eyes and a body full of gleaming scales. There are different types of dance to describe the essence of great strength, power, courage and luck of the Lion. The dancing requires a solid foundation in Kung-Fu, otherwise, a fierce lion may come out more like a pussy cat. And, it takes a person to be a little flaky to dance a good lion. The four characters on the top “Gong Hay Fat Choy” mean “Congratulations and wishing you great wealth.” The lion dancing can often be seen on New Year’s day, at temples, celebration of significant events, and grand opening of major financial buildings. It is said that the red envelope will bring good luck both to the person who receives it and the person who gives it.
