Chinese New Year is one of the most important celebrations for Chinese people across the globe. It is a time for families to reunite, as well as honor deities and ancestors. During Chinese New Year and other traditional, cultural and religious festivals, the Chinese lion dance is performed to bring luck, fortune and prosperity into a community. Chinese folklore depicts the lion as a symbol of courage, stability and prosperity. Incidentally, lions are not native to China. Dating back to the Han Dynasty (206BCE to 220CE) in China, the lion dance is traditionally performed to music made up of beating drums, cymbals and gongs to fend off ghosts and evil spirits thought to be afraid of loud noises.
