the year of the golden pigPosted: February 18, 2007
London has been celebrating in style, and I think with more people than ever today to bring in the Year of the Pig. I went to enjoy the sights, scents and crush of people today in London's China Town and West End. This is what I saw:
There were a LOT of people, did I say?
Everyone and everything was decked in decorations today, including the vegetable stands.
I tell you, it all smelled and looked so good!
The fireworks and those little bendy dragons were doing good business today.
Last year they did these glittery dogs (for the year of the dog, of course),
but I couldn't find any nice piggy ones this year to buy as a souvenier.
These dragons were really gorgeous though:
Dragons were all the craze today anyways.
The dragon dancers were doing their rounds in the China Town and were much expected by the small…
and the not so small! :-D
Everyone was trying to find the perfect spot to see the festivities:
Although some were not that fussed to be honest!
There were also other things for kids to do…
like climbing or…
… just being musical while dad doesn't notice! :-D
So, to bring in a lucky new year open your windows, turn the lights on at night and eat something sweet!
Gung hei fat choi!
