  • Description

    SNOW AND FREEZING TEMPERATURES DID NOT DETER NEW YORK'S CHINESE TODAY FROM CELEBRATING. ACCORDING TO THE CHINESE LUNAR CALENDAR, TODAY WAS THE BIG DAY.

    IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR 4656, THE FIRST DAY OF THE FIRST MOON IN THE YEAR OF THE DOG...A TIME FOR EXPLODING FIRECRACKERS, WONDERFUL COSTUMES, STILT*WALKERS, DRAGON DANCES. THIS YEAR, THE PARADE WAS HEMMED IN BY THE HIGH DRIFTS ON FLOWED SNOW BUT NEITHER THE SNOW NOR THE COLD PREVENTED THE USUAL COLOURFUL TURNOUT IN MOTT STREET IN THE HEAT OF NEW YORK'S CHINATOWN. BUT TODAY WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING. THERE WERE WILL BE MORE DRAGON DANCING, AND STILT WALKING ON GEORGE WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY AND THE LION'S DANCE WILL BE HELD SUNDAY, THE 23RD.
