Lunar New Year/旧お正月/過年


The Lunar New Year is almost upon us here.  Everywhere in town I see temporary shops set up selling things that one needs for the celebrations, such as paper "god money" that people burn to send to their ancestors in the afterlife.  You can see piles of the yellow stuff in the window of this Volvo dealer here:


 I've also been hearing firecrackers everywhere.  And the other day in the supermarket I saw this lion dance troupe.  Not only did they dance at the entrance to the supermarket, they also danced through the aisles.
