It is said that this SFO tradition has been ongoing for 150 years, and is the largest New Year parade outside of China. Why this is happening more than a week after the actual new year day is a mystery, but, no matter, for there was excitement and cacophony awaiting the start. A cast of thousands, and more than a hundred dragons.
Yes, this is the year of the Dog.
Well, so much for Chinese New Year 2018. Next year this day falls on February 5, and begins the Year of the Pig, considered by seers as most unlucky. Good luck to all.
