“Best wishes and Congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year."
One of the largest of our public celebrations in
is the annual Chinese New Year
parade. Hundreds of thousands of people turn out to line the streets and cheer
the marching children, shriek in mock-amazement at the lion dancers and dragons,
and simply have a great time. Usually, because it comes in the midst of our
rainy season, it is a bit damp. This year we had only sprinkles and it was not enough to dampen the firecrackers, or spirit. San Francisco
