Students from Ross Sheppard High School perform a traditional lion dance at Barnett House on Thursday, Feb. 11. The lunchtime performance accompanied a Chinese food dinner and was a celebration of Chinese New Year.
According to Chinese culture, each year is associated with one of 12 animal zodiac signs and one of five elements, with 2016 being the year of the monkey and fire. The last fire monkey year was 1956. People born under this combination are said to be ambitious and adventurous but also irritable.
