During the Chinese New Year, it is a tradition for the lion to go from business to business to perform. The business owners "feed" the lion with oranges, a head of lettuce or bok choy which includes a red envelope filled with money. This brings prosperity to the business for the upcoming year.
Connor quickly decided she did NOT like the Lions or the drums up close.
I scooped her up along with all our stuff from our road trip and tried to get around the lions to head for our apartment. But wouldn't you know their next stop was right outside our apartment door. So it was hard to get away.
You can sense from the photo below how close they were to our apartment doorstep.
Wouldn't you know as soon as we got in our door Connor was instantly more interested with the glass barrier dividing her from the lions.
It was an overdue naptime, but I can assure you with this going on directly below our apartment there was no sleeping.
So my little Valentine pulled out her My Little Pony and hid out in her pink plastic bin.
I did make eggrolls with dinner in celebration. Happy Chinese New Year. Now let's see YOUR Lion Dance!!!
