Yet more lions

Out and about today enjoying the holiday atmosphere. Everywhere we look are red lanterns, pink plastic cherry blossom and quite a few strange statues. I don't know what this one is, but loads of people were posing with it, so I felt compelled to join in.
As I mentioned before, this year is the year of the horse. There are twelve different types of years and disappointingly, I am an ox, but I think that beats Darren's goat.
We were in a shopping centre when we came across another set of lions and they were just about to start dancing. The Chinese family next to us were really excited, particularly the youngest boy. However, as soon as the drums started and the lions started leaping about, he crawled behind his dad's legs and stayed there for the whole show.
