The Lion Dance can be traced to the Han Dynasty. Legend says that long ago there was a beast that looked like a lion with a sharp horn that could be used to attack its prey called Nian. While it primarily lived at the bottom of the sea, it enjoyed terrorizing villagers on the last day of the lunar year until a lion came and defeated Nian. Since then, villagers began dressing as the lion to keep Nian away. This is why red is worn along with the use of drums, firecrackers, and fireworks to make loud noises. If you notice, these elements are used during the Lion Dance.
