The Chinese DragonBlessing Raggamuffin's Office

As many of you know, the Chinese New Year was celebrated earlier this week! In Chinese tradition, a few days later they bless their community by taking out the bad luck and bringing the good luck into the business community with their costume dragon.

And therefore today we were treated to a spectacle of a beautiful Chinese custom. As the photos show, the parade went through the streets, beating their drums and waving their leaves with their bright gold dragon. Each individual business was treated to a ‘dance’ with bowing heads and waving hands all with significance, intended to bring prosperity to the community.

They left no business or part of the community untouched without their blessing … even the Caye Caulker Primary School and Ocean Academy were treated to their own personal display!!

Thank you for blessing our Caye Caulker!
