3. The origin of Dragon dance
One day, Dragon king, the dragon ruling the sea, had a
bad backache. And he took all the medicine in his palace but still in vain.
So he turned into an old man to see the doctor on earth. When the doctor touched
the dragon king¡¦s body, right away he knew the old man in front of him was not
human being. So the doctor asked him "You are not human, right?"
Dragon king knew that he couldn't fool the doctor so
he returned to his original form to let the doctor check his body.
Then the doctor pulled out a centipede in the scale of
Dragon king's waist. That is why Dragon king had a backache!
To repay for the doctor's help,
Dragon king told the doctor "If you make a dragon model based on my
appearance, your country will have timely rain and wind and great harvest!"
That is why we have dragon dance now!
