Year of the Dragon Celebration in Honolulu's Chinatown

Traditional Lion Dance Blessings  I went to the traditional Lion Dance blessings in Honolulu's Chinatown last night. Over several blocks of downtown, with traffice kept out of the area, groups of dancers could be seen like this wiley little one next to me below in the photo. Stick out a dollar, and he gobbles it up in no time. Unfortunately, he doesn't stand still so you can't really see him. But if you click on the link below, you can see a group of dancing lions around strings of firecrackers. Retail stores celebrate by lighting them and offering "lisee" (good luck money placed in red evelopes) to the dancing lions.
