Tag Archives: Lotus Lantern Festival 2013

Growing up on dragon and lion dances during Chinese New Year, I love looking at the often modern footwear of these traditional practices. During this year’s Lotus Lantern Festival in Seoul held the week before Buddha’s birthday, this dragon’s feet caught my eye:

Spot the colored ones in the middle!

This festival would be incomplete without lions frolicking about:

Besties.

Roar!

Roar!

In this year’s Lotus Lantern Festival in Seoul a week before Buddha’s birthday, this lovely grandmother in a pink hanbok caught my eye.

I smiled. I waved. She waved back.

All smiles for Buddha!

All smiles for Buddha!

Happy (almost) Birthday, Buddha!
