Childrens Lunar New Year Celebration

My son and I took part today in the Childrens Lunar New Year Celebration at the Texas Asian Cultures Museum in Corpus Christi. The kids learned to fold paper into shapes (origami), made dragon masks and paper lanterns, watched children's dance troupes perform, and marched in a Chinese Dragon Parade. The woman leading the event told me that this time of year in China is a time when the work from harvest is done and planting hasn't begun, so the people find time for music, art and merriment.
