The Chunlong Festival, or Spring Dragon Festival falls on the second day of the second month on Chinese Lunar calendar, or Er Yue Er. It is regarded by the Chinese people as the day when the "Dragon raises its head", which means the spring awakens after winter hibernation, and the rain will increase.
