Even though Cambodians have their own New Year’s Day, they still celebrate the Chinese one with great joy. All houses get decorated with yellow flowers, which are supposed to bring good fortune while Lion and Dragon dancers are performing on the streets. It is considered that the longer the creature is in dance, the more luck it brings to the ​audience, so people usually give small donations to keep them dance as long as possible.
