CHINESE NEW YEAR

We were invited to the Chinese New Year celebrations at Elements Lifestyle Living, the village where we hope to move to soon. It was a fun night, with the lion dance and delicious food. We met some of our future neighbours. Everyone was very friendly.
 The lion tries to eat one of the party goers. The party was held in the Activities Hall. Friends and family were welcome especially grandchildren. They had a special area, fun, food and games.


The lions like to be fed a red donation envelope.

 Bill feeds the lion but then the lion attacked him and gobbled his head.

 Bill thought it was funny.

 The children enjoyed feeding the dancing lions.

 It was great entertainment.

I'm not sure of the significance of some of the actions. The lions had to reach up high to eat a suspended cabbage and here the lion presents a banner to another character. I guess I should research this. But I have packing to do.
