It's been a while since I heard that drum and saw the performers. Growing up in Asia it was a regular event, especially at Lunar New Year. Today my daughter and I heard firecrackers and saw lions dancing in front of our Vietnamese hair salon in Olympia. And enjoyed free food. My daughter even received a red envelope with a crisp one dollar bill in it.
Everyone also to whom God has given wealth and possessions and power to enjoy them, and to accept his lot and rejoice in his toil--this is the gift of God. Ecclesiastes 5:19 ESV
