Lion Dance - Chinese New Year Series (6)

The drum beat from a lion dance attracted me this morning to a nearby temple that was having a lion dance performance. I was fortunate to catch 2 lions in action! When I was a child, I used to chase after lion dance performers whenever I heard their drum beats. We even had our own lion dances using Mom's blanket and my brothers would be beating the drums, while my sister and I would be hiding under the blanket and swaying away!
Those are my childhood days!

Have you seen a lion dance before?

Happy Chinese New Year to all of you! How was your CNY celebration?

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
