新年快乐
Happy New Year to my many Chinese friends - and especially to those who have gone home - Hope you have a wonderful celebration with your friends and family SmileSmileSmile

The dragon's head was made at school from old boxes - it has a long "tunnel" of a body made with material attached to hoops, so that it covers several children when they make the dragon dance.
