So here is another holiday I can check of that list of mine! This year was the 40th anniversary of the new year parade that makes its way through china town in Vancouver. There were many dragons, as you would expect and a few snakes but there were also some, um, creative acts… not quite sure why there were a bunch of people dressed in what looked like old halloween costumes dancing and jumping around very enthusiastically, but none the less it made for a good giggle. If I go to the parade again next year I am going to dress warmer… my toes almost froze off! But other than that it makes for a fun day.
