我与中国新年的舞龙

龙对于中国人来说可谓地位高祟,中国人身为「龙的传人」,在重要节日如农曆新年都会以舞龙等方式歌颂龙。就在上一个农曆新年,我到了唐人街,为了捕捉这些特别的一刻。

舞龙就是一群男子把龙身举起,配合鼓声并彷效龙的活动姿态,迴旋而舞。

舞龙起源于中国以龙舞祈雨的风俗。今日它的作用在于驱鬼避邪,而在节日中,它更表示能带来能量、财富及智慧。

有的舞龙可长达30米,而且龙身的花纹非常精緻。龙身上不同的颜色有不同意义:绿色代表丰收;金银色寓意繁荣;红色则有带来好运之意。

大部份我看过的舞龙都在商店前举行,配以炮竹,气势非凡。旁边还有舞狮加强声势 (狮子本身在中国也有好运的意思),最后店主会给舞龙红包回礼。

要和舞龙来一张合照吗?
