warak ngendok welcome ramadhan in semarang

This time Dugderan  held in the  Masjid Agung Jawa Tengah region. Previously,  Dugderan  ordinary held in the  Kauman mosque area  near Johar market, and the last few years was held around the Polder Tawang, Old City, not far from the Pasar Johar.
is incomplete Dugderan without warak ngendhog . Peak of the event will be celebrated with a parade Dugderan with warak around the city of Semarang. Very very lively tradition of welcoming the arrival of Ramadan.
Warak Ngendhog is unique toys that appear once and only present at the celebration tradition called Dugderan . This fictitious animals like goats with a body shaped like a dragon's head. According to historians, this animal is a blend of animal  mythical Chinese dragon  and Buroq from Arab, in other words, warak ngendhog is a symbol of the unity of various ethnic groups in Semarang, considering that the city was founded Ki Ageng Pandanaran many ethnic Chinese live.
However, whether Ramadan will we live together will also be full of worship such as the lively and crowded welcome the arrival of this holy month?
Dugderan and Warak Ngendhog is a tradition to greet the coming month of Ramadan that we should not leave. But more important is how we fill in Ramadan with something that will make our worship is not in vain.
Ramadan not " latah" worship as practiced by most people. Like many people in droves to go to the mosque to perform prayers in congregation, but when the sacred months have passed, a good habit that was already finished. No more entourage who came to the mosque for congregational prayers.
Where the loss of splendor Ramadan? Ramadan is not only overflowing  like Dugderan with warak,  is'nt?
