Lunar New Year in the International District is one of my favorite sketch outings. Despite the cool temperatures I wasn't disappointed with the color and activity.
This is the Year of the Snake - the black water snake specifically. If you were born in the year of the Snake (every twelfth year counting backwards) lighting 10,000 firecrackers at the new year as well as wearing something red - a belt, socks, suspenders, even underwear - will bring you good luck.
新 年 快 乐 !
Happy New Year!
