The dragon of luck

As is an imaginable paws of the tiger, the beard of the goat, the scales of the carp and the belly of the snake. According to legends, the Chinese dragon is able to breathe fire, summon wind and call for rain, fly into the clouds and hide at the bottom of the sea; it’s also capable of becoming as large as the sky or disguising itself by being as tiny as a pinhead. Unlike castle-burning dragons of Western stories, Chinese Dragons are a symbol in the Chinese culture. From celebrations to the Zodiac, to historical rulers, the dragon has played a large part in China’s rich history. It is a good luck charm. Thats why there on the houses.

Me and my friends had a good dinner that night.

Emperors requested a ceremonial sword for himself

Swords have a long history in China. Bronze swords have been traced back to the bronze daggers of the Shang period. Bronze long swords suddenly appeared during the mid-third century BC. Later swords were made of iron or steel. These metals were wrought, never cast. Swords commonly reached a length of 70–100 cm, although longer swords have been found.
