Chinese NY Parade

Linnea celebrated Chinese New Year in school today, with a parade together with the other Kindy class and the little Unicorns - all around school.
Just like last year, they had a big dragon and some kids got to walk in/under the dragon, while the others were bashing pots and pans, shaking bells and making as much noise as possible!

(The story goes, the dragon came down from his mountain every year at New Year, to eat the people. Until one day when they realized, he was afraid of light, noise and the colour red! That's why they have so many lanterns, fire crackers and all dress in red - for the Chinese New Year.)

Here they are, getting the dragon ready:

Here's all the noise makers:

Off they go!

Bash, bash, bash!
