The world is my school and today, the second day of Chinese New Year I experienced a lion dance. There was one in our apartment parking lot and you could hear them going on all over Hong Kong. Professionals at Chinese martial arts groups perform the lion dance. To start off the lion goes up to someone and that person makes the lion come to life. Then after that the lion moves beautifully. It looked like it was a real lion. During the lion dance they were dancing on top of high poles. That is why you need to be a professional in Chinese martial arts to do the lion dance. The lions eye lids closed and ears moved. To make the lion come alive there are 2 men in pants that have the same fabric as the lions body. I can't believe how real the lion looked. It looked even more real because the guy in the back made it look like the lions tale was moving and like he was sitting down some times. At the end the lion tries to get lettuce in an envelope that is hanging from a high place. When he gets it he spits out the roots out and someone has to catch it. A little while after that the lion took a scroll in its mouth and dropped it so you could read it. Guess what, the stuff that was on the scroll was in Chinese. All the stuff people were saying was Chinese. The lion dance was very beautiful and if you go to videos there will be some there.
Later on that day we went to go see fireworks. There were hearts and birds. They were soooo pretty!!! That was my day.
