Chinese New Year Fun

Gung Hay Fat Choy, everybody!

What's the most fun you can have on Chinese New Year?  Well, I'm biased!  I like to make a Chinese Dancing Dragon and take it for a spin. 

Maybe it's the big arm motions, spinning round and round or up and zig-zagging down--that gets your whole body in flight. 

Maybe it's the festive music, with crashing cymbals, simple flute melodies, and drums that thump in your chest.

Or maybe it's the sound of the dragon's tissue-paper tail fluttering like a spinning whip in figure eights.

I love to dance with a Chinese dragon, and I love to do it with 25 kids smiling all zany and comically.  It only happens once a year, on the night of the new moon...

Gung Hay Fat Choy, everybody!  Enjoy the day!!
