Really, Mum!

On our wanders at the weekend, we came across a Chinese New Year celebration.  I couldn’t see all of what was going on, but I could hear drumming and see a giant papier-mache head waving around.

“Look, Babess, a dragon dance!”

“No it’s not,” she contradicted.  I did a double-take, she was so sure of herself.  “It’s a lion dance,” she instructed.

It was, too.  How did she know there was such a thing, and what the difference was?!
