Here at 3monkeez we celebrated by having 2 lion dancers and fireworks on January 30th at 1pm. It was an exciting day and an experience for many who had not ever seen anything like it before. This is the first time 3monkeez has had this event, which now will be an annual event.
The lion dance has been part of the Chinese culture for thousands of years and is performed on auspicious occasions such as weddings, store openings, and various festivals and celebrations. The lion, a symbol of power, wisdom, and good fortune, chases away evil spirits and brings happiness, longevity, and good luck. The lion dance is also performed at many business locations during the Chinese New Year’s Celebration for the lion brings prosperity and good luck to the business for the upcoming year.
