MM – Ringing in the Year of the Horse

This past weekend we celebrated the upcoming Chinese New Year at a Carnival! January 31, 2014 begins the Year of the Horse, which is supposed to be a year for quick successes! We wish you all quick successes in your endeavors.

Us here, we’re enjoying our success, though it hasn’t been quick –we’ll be celebrating Saturday Morning Productions’s 6th birthday in February… (Think of all the things you’ve worked on for 6 years). Here’s when we thank our Mini-Compressor customers and wonderful clients for helping us to build our success story!

Anyway, back to the Carnival.

Among the many martial arts demonstrations, dances and contests, hands down, our favourite performances of the weekend were the Lion Dances. They were so awesome and lifelike! They inspired DD to imitate it at home with her stuffed lion, complete with throwing candy and a scroll. Awwwwww. Equally as cute were the Junior Lions with their out-of-sync way of ringing in the New Year and spreading cheer!

Onto the pictures: here are 8 (8 is lucky) photos of the festivities, taken on my iPhone 4.

If I was the sharing type, I’d compress these with a simple right-click and email an album half the size, with – say it with me now – little quality loss.  How’s that for “junior lions”?

We hope you enjoy your Chinese New Year’s Eve, and party like it’s the Year of the Snake!
