Travel Theme: Mask

With the Lunar New Year coming soon I thought it would be perfect to share some photos that I took while visiting EPCOT last December. I love watching the dragon dance. I know it’s technically a costume…I’m going to sneak it in as a mask. 😉

Dragon dance (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: wǔ lóng) is a form of traditional dance and performance in Chinese culture. …

The dragon dance is often performed during Chinese New Year. Chinese dragons are a symbol of China, and they are believed to bring good luck to people, therefore the longer the dragon in the dance, the more luck it will bring to the community.[1] The dragons are believed to possess qualities that include great power, dignity, fertility, wisdom and auspiciousness. The appearance of a dragon is both frightening and bold but it has a benevolent disposition, and so eventually became an emblem to represent imperial authority. The movements in a performance traditionally symbolize historical roles of dragons demonstrating power and dignity.
