Some lion dancers in Vancouver's Chinatown today. If you haven't seen it before, the shopkeepers hang red envelopes and lettuce above their entrances and the lions jumps up to eat the offerings. The lettuce, considered to represent luck, is chewed up and spit out by the lion. You can see some of the leaves being ejected in the photo. I also got a bunch of lettuce thrown at me although it seemed pretty deliberate. ;-) The envelope is supposed to contain money to pay the dancers but I often see money passed by hand.
