Today marks the second day of the second lunar month. This day is also called Dragon Heads-raising Day, as it is thought to be the day when the dragon awakes and raises its head as per the Chinese folk legend.

In China, many people choose to have their hair cut on this day. Silian Hairdressing, a hair salon in Beijing, opened early than usual today to welcome its larger than usual number of customers.
