Chinese New Year - Year of the Rabbit

Last week was the Chinese New Year and the celebrations in London took place on Sunday.  I went up to town but China Town was so crowded I only managed a couple of photos of the celebration.  They are not very good photos but I here they are anyway.

I did managed to get a picture of the street decorations.

I took a bus back to Victoria I took this photo of Trafalgar Square and you can see the crowds of people.


  1. That's neat, the pictures came out nice to. Everything looked so colorful...what a fun day out. Have a nice day! :o)

  2. Great stuff Lynne, though definitely looking a bit colder than Singapore!

  3. Hi Lynne! The Barnum picture is a poster the other two on the wall are cross stitched. Have a nice evening, and thank you for visiting me. :O)

  4. I had no idea this is such a big event in London! It reminds me of Hong Kong... The picture of the decorations is great, and the others are nice, too!
