The Spring Festival, the most significant traditional celebration in Chinese culture, marks a momentous occasion for family gatherings and shared joy. Every household adorns their doors with red couplets and colorful lanterns, while a diverse array of traditional delicacies enriches the festive atmosphere of the New Year's Eve dinner. Across the globe, various regions are gearing up to welcome a surge of visitors and lively celebrations, allowing happiness to reach its peak during this special time.

As we approach the upcoming Chinese New Year of the Dragon, the dragon rightfully takes center stage. In the submissions to our "Sharing China" photo contest, dragons in various forms often become the central focus through the lenses of photographers both at home and abroad. Through these photographic works, we aim to take you on a journey exploring the diverse styles of dragon dances from various regions, highlighting different dragon-related elements, and providing a deep immersion into the vibrant traditions associated with the Lunar New Year.

Let us warmly welcome the auspicious dragon and together create a symphony of happiness for the new year.
