The lion danced, teased and reared to the crowd’s delight. The tempo quickened as the drummer vigorously pounded his drum harder and faster, the percussionists followed suit with their beating of the gongs and clashing of the cymbals. The lion danced vigorously to the accompanying music and made its way to the highest pedestal. The music now at a deafening crescendo suddenly dropped to a whisper … all eyes were trained on the lion as it gestured before making a dramatic leap across to an adjoining pedestal to claim the red packet dangling from a pole, a symbolic gift of good luck and happiness.
