Lion Dances

The first day back to work after the New Year holiday means lots of Lion Dances. People are hired to come perform this dance at businesses with drum and cymbal accompaniment. We saw this one at our local hardware store. It's meant to bring good luck and prosperity in the new year. When we ran errands, we heard and saw this several times yesterday. This is the Chinese zodiac year of the Golden Pig. It's a very auspicious year, so if you're thinking of having a kid, this is the year to do it!
