The Chinese New Year was February 10 and is different every year, determined by the phases of the moon. The Hull First Ward had a fantastic party. We ate Chinese food, played games, sang a Chinese song, watched fireworks, and launched some Chinese lanterns. Here are a few pictures. Sister Olson was born in the year of the rat, which is a very good year. Elder Olson can't seem to remember in what year he was born. This year is the year of the snake.
The elders were inside the dragon dancing around.
We went to the city centre and watched the snake dance through St. Stevens shopping centre in celebration of the Chinese New Year. William and Suki and other friends were there also.
These Brits look to bake and decorate cakes. Sister Sanderson invited me over to her home and showed me how to bake for our gluten free elder and how to decorate. The YSAs were elated as they were the recipients of the yummee treats.
