Dotting ceremony of new lion

21st January 2017 – Ching Howe Chan residence

The Chinese Community Centre Lion Dance were honored to be sponsored with a brand new lion from Ching Howe Chan. Ching Howe Chan is an Orthodontist, whom has a practice located in Winthrop.

The dotting of the lion ceremony is a ceremony in which the lion is brought to life for the first time. The ceremony involves the lion being dotted in the eyes, mouth, feet, body, horn with red paint. The red bow on top of the lions horn is also tied on for the first time. Ching Howe, being the sponsor, had the honors of conducting this ceremony. It is believed that the person who has the honor of bringing the lion to life, will receive prosperity and everlasting fortune in their personal and business ventures.

The ceremony was conducted at Ching Howe’s residential home, where family and friends were present to witness this special occasion. Once the brand new lion was brought to life, long loud firecrackers were lit, and  2 other lions joined the new lion in blessing the home of Ching Howe.

The CCC Lion Dance troupe would love to thank Ching Howe for his support and his generosity in sponsoring our troupe. Your kindness is greatly appreciated and we are forever grateful of kindness. We wish you all the best in your business’s success, and the best of health to you and your family.
