    The dragon () is a great animal in Chinese culture. It brings the wind and rain. It is said that every year on the second day of the second lunar (阴历的) month, the dragon wakes up from its winter sleep and raises its head. Because of this, the day is called Dragon Heads-raising Day (Longtaitou). This year, it falls on Feb 27.

    Old people believed that after Longtaitou, there would be more rain. And rain is very important to farming. So Longtaitou was the start of spring and farming.

    People have many ways to celebrate the Longtaitou festival. The most popular one is to have a haircut. Many believe that a haircut during the first lunar month may bring bad luck to your uncles mainly your mothers brothers. They hope getting a haircut on Longtaitou gets rid of bad luck.

    Among Chinese peoples festival traditions, there is always a place for food. During the Longtaitou festival, people eat food named after dragons. Noodles are called dragons beard (胡须) (longxu). Dumpling are dragons ears (long er). And spring rolls are dragons scales (鳞片) (longlin).
