Dragons, master of rain and water

Culture

The Chinese dragon is no fire-breathing monster, in China they are regarded as powerful but benevolent. As dragons are masters of rain, water and sea they need to be brought on your side if you want a good harvest, and so they need suitable offerings. The Dragon boat festival held near midsummer is when everyone used to seek to placate the dragon kings.
