Vietnamese Dragon Dance:
At a Tet (Vietnamese Lunar New Year) Festival, children who perform in the dragon dance are traditionally called the “heavenly dogs,” and the envelopes of “lucky money” they collect are symbolic offerings. The dragon dance, a vital part of Vietnamese culture, is performed in several festivals, particularly the Tet celebration. The dragon symbolizes blessing and prosperity, and the dance is performed to expel devils and to bring good luck.
