Chinese New Year Dragon Decorations
In China the Dragon is a symbol of power. It is not necessarily an evil creature like we tend to portray them as Medieval Dragons. The Chinese interpretation of a dragon is a powerful, mystical creature that can scare of evil or bad spirits. Chinese New Years celebrations usually have dragon and lion dances that make a lot of noise with music and fireworks to start the year off right by scaring away the evil spirits.
In 2012 the Dragon is going to be even more popular because the Chinese calendar is connected with the Chinese zodiac calendar which has animal characters. The year of the Dragon is going to be a powerful year for us all. The Chinese New Year Dragon is typically red and gold to go with the belief that bright colors will ward off evil. So, when you combine red, and a dragon, you have a powerful symbol for strength and hope in the New Year. Check out all of our Chinese New Year Dragon decorations and use them to start your New Year off right.
