2024 is the Year of the Dragon!
In Asia and Chinatown cities worldwide, dragons are everywhere you look – mosaics and statues on temples, painted murals, on tiled rooftops and royal thrones, decorating plates, vases, lucky red envelopes, and kites, for the Lunar New Year dragon dancers parade through streets day and night.
Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) is coming up – it’s the Year of the Dragon.
Legends and lucky symbols of the New Year, videos of San Francisco and Bangkok, children’s books, fun food to celebrate the holiday.
Children’s books transport us to the poetry of snow, mythical journeys in winter landscapes, a true story of Antarctica, the beauty and wildlife of winter woods, joy and imagination of a city changed by snow overnight.
Starting in fall, monarch butterflies in western United States migrate to the coast of California where they spend winter months, November to February. Three best monarch butterfly sanctuaries are Pismo Beach, Pacific Grove and Santa Cruz.
