What does the Dragon stand for in the Chinese New Year ?

The dragon dance is often performed during Chinese New Year. Dragons are legendary animals, but they are important to Chinese people who think of dragons as helpful, friendly creature. They are linked to good luck, long life and wisdom. They are nothing like the fierce, fire-breathing Western dragons that carry off princesses and eat people. Chinese Dragons are associated with storm clouds and life-giving rain. They have special powers so they can fly in the air, swim in the sea and walk on land.
