Red Lion posing for a pictureIt’s that time again! February 7th is Chinese New Year for 2008! Celebrations have already started and the stores are already selling gau. The best part, for me, is that it’s time for the drums and the Chinese dragons (or lions) to make their presence known!

One of the best things about working close to Fort Street is that it is so close to Chinatown and the organizations that put on these wonderful, cultural performances are always close by!

I can’t explain it but the sound of those drums is like a lure for me. Time to drop everything, grab the camera and some dollar bills, and follow the sound of those drums! I was fortunate enough, yesterday, to be forewarned that they were on their way down Fort Street.

This particular group was very welcoming of the admiration I was more than ready to give them. This was exciting for me because it was my first for the year. Unfortunately, I only had $1 bills to give them. I have, in the past, given them $5 bills… they seem to “digest” those a little better. :)

Year of the Rat Calendar

Anyway, this group was the first to confirm for me that we’re about to leave the Year of the Boar behind and enter the Year of the Rat. Co-workers have already bought the wall calendar for those traveling to Vegas to check on their Chinese zodiac sign to see where their luck is going to be while they’re in Vegas.

Green and Purple Lion

Like I said, these guys were more than willing to soak up the admiration and have their pictures taken. What a sight they are! The beautiful colors and intricate detail of their costumes is really something to witness. Obviously they’ll get my vote every time!

Music for the Lions and the Dragons

As far as cultural art forms go, just show me a dragon and let me hear those drums and I’m one of the most appreciative observers that you’ll find!

Here’s a list of some of the festivities coming our way. Kung Hee Fat Choy, Honolulu!

    Being born and raised in Honolulu, and being mostly Chinese, I miss the Chinese New Year’s celebration in Chinatown. We would go as a family every year where I saw my uncle perform as part of the lion dancers, eating at the restaurants and watching my aunty deep fry gin dui in a big wok, firecrackers going off in the store fronts…There is nothing like it in Hilo where I now live.

    Hi HVG! I’m so glad to hear from you! I wish you guys could be here! Maybe you can plan your next vacation to come to Oahu for Chinese New Year next year?!? Unless you want to fly over in a couple of days! :)
