Chinese Lion Dance (Chinese New Year 11/11)

The New Year celebration would not be complete without a dance or two from a Chinese Lion. This is a Southern style lion.

Yes... food, dancing, music, flowers, firecrackers, decorations, family, tradition and culture all rolled into one. Chinese New Year officially started February 7 this year but depending on your local traditions the celebrations and events could last up to 15 days.
