Watch the LIVE performance of the Lion and Dragon Dance Group on 9th February from 10:30am to 1:00pm at Vision City Mega Mall. Celebrate and welcome the Year of the Pig with us!
On the 5th of February 2019 we wave good bye to the Year of the Dog and welcome the Chinese New Year, Pig. This lucky animal PIG symbolizes wealth, their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Pigs have beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.
Chinese New Year is celebrated by more than 20% of the world. It is the most important of the Chinese holidays, and it is a time of feasting with family, celebration, fireworks and gift giving. During this time, the children receive a red envelope with money inside ending in even numbers, like “8”. This money is supposed to help transfer fortune from the elders to the kids.
Vision City Mega Mall welcomes the Chinese New Year with fun and entertainment as part of the annual tradition of the mall. The Mall Management and majority of the shops joined in one day to celebrate the New Year with a full performance of the Lion and Dragon Dance Group. The Lion and Dragon performers are both old traditions that demand acrobatic skill and years of tough training from the performers involved. The role of the Dragon and Lion Dance is to promote the spiritual construction, physically and mentally. As most of the traditions of Chinese New Year, the purpose is to bring good fortune and prosperity to a business or neighborhood for the coming year.
Gong Xi Fa Cai everyone!
