lion dancers for days

Three days to be precise. Imagine walking up the street to get some breakfast and running into these guys.

Ok, it didn’t happen quite like that.

Abby got her first taste of lion dancers at school on Friday and it was the event of the season, let me tell you. So when we heard drums and symbols on Saturday morning, all the trouble I was having getting sleepy Abby out of the house disappeared in a flash.

“Mama, what’s that noise?”

“It sounds like lion dancers.”

“Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!”

(Feigning surprise) “Oh? Would you like to go see them?”

“Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!”

We ran outside to find lion dancers in front of the bank around the corner. Random, yes, but exciting all the same. Once they were finished, we walked up the street to get breakfast when we encountered these guys making their way through the neighborhood. So rather than get breakfast, we followed the procession for the next 2 hours.

At breakfast the next morning, we heard those drums yet again. And from a diner doorway, Abby gaped at her fourth group of lion dancers in 3 days.

Have there been any New Year’s celebrations in your neck of the woods?

    • We are! I’ve only been a coople of times. I took Abby when she was a baby. When she was a little older I started noticing how sensitive she was to loud noises and big crowds so I stayed away. But I think she’ll be okay this year. She can’t wait!
