    So much fun handing out little red envelops with money in them to kids and playing with firecrackers.

    A lot of money is offered to the lions as well. Here the lion is climbing a Jong to receive it.

    Once it "eats" the money they light off the BIG firecrackers and the dance really gets very excited.

    The idea is that if you are starting off the year loaded up with "lucky" money, then it's a good omen for the rest of the new year.

    Funny! They do call it "teasing" the lion.
