This past weekend, a few friends and I headed to Butte, Montana for a Chinese New Year parade. I had always suspected that Montana was not the Chinese capital of America... my visit to Butte proved me right. Regardless, the fact that Butte celebrates the Chinese New Year at all is awesome! I mean, who doesn't love a good parade?


Actually, I don't think that you could really call what we attended a parade.. seeing as all the people who were there watching actually were the parade! I haven't been in a parade since I was a ten-year-old baton twirler, so I must admit that I enjoyed the experience immensely!


It's the Year of the Rabbit, which Chinese astrologers predict to be a year of peace, calm, leisure, and rest. I hope they're right because that sounds wonderful.

Is it just me, or does this rabbit look pissed about something? Maybe he was just cold...


We followed a Chinese New Year dragon around town while people clapped, lit firecrackers, screamed, and (as you'll see in the video below..) got jiggy with it.

...oh..and here's little something special because I reminded myself of this quality song...

Happy Year of the Rabbit everyone!
