Through the end of the winter, when there is shortage of food, the Nian comes during the beginning of the year to eat livestocks, vegetations, and even the villagers including children too. In order to protect  themselves and prevent this from happening, the villagers at the beginning of the year, placed foods at their door step. It was believed that after the Nian ate this food been prepared by this villagers, it won't attack them. It is also believed that the ferocious Nian was afraid of three things: the colour red, fire, and noise.  So when they discover that the new year is approaching, the villagers would hang red lanterns and red spring scrolls on windows and doors.

From then on, Nian never came to the village again.  According to Myth, the Nian was eventually captured by Hongjun Laozu, an ancient Taoist monk, thereby making Nian become Hongjun Laozu's mount.

The Kappa, which means ‘river child’, is said to be a creature with the body of a tortoise, a beak, and the limbs of a frog, and has a hollow filled with water on top of his head.

According to legend, the cavity must be kept wet when the Kappa ventures out of the water, or he will lose his powers. The Kappa is one of the most well-known folk legends in Japan and many believe the mythical creature to be true. In fact, there are signs near some lakes in Japan warning people of their presence.  However, others maintain it possibility that the legend of the Kappa is somehow linked with the sightings of a Japanese Giant Salamander, or ‘hanzaki’, which is known to be aggressive and to grab its prey with its magnificent jaws.
