Year of the Dragon

Bright sun yellows and shimmering golds; fire reds, neon greens, and shimmering silver sequins. Dragons and lions moving like water above the crowds and small children sitting on shoulders, giggling with glee. Drums pounding out celebratory rhythms to welcome in the new year. the smell of sulfur lingering in the air long after one’s ears stop ringing from the firecrackers, and lettuce and discarded medallions wishing good luck scattered on the ground. Happy Chinese New Year!
