Joy of LOVE 05 what they wear

ok, so i really have not been playing along too well with this photo challenge. i am not doing the things i am supposed to, and i promise as soon as i catch up, i will do it again. as a matter of fact, i may just start over and do this lesson again – joy of love in general i mean!

Vietnamese Dragon Dance:
At a Tet (Vietnamese Lunar New Year) Festival, children who perform in the dragon dance are traditionally called the “heavenly dogs,” and the envelopes of “lucky money” they collect are symbolic offerings. The dragon dance, a vital part of Vietnamese culture, is performed in several festivals, particularly the Tet celebration. The dragon symbolizes blessing and prosperity, and the dance is performed to expel devils and to bring good luck.
