Chinese New Year

Manchester’s Dragon, Chinese New Year 2020

#Dragon #Chinese #NewYear #Luck #Manchester

Dancing lightly through the Manchester streets,

Royal dragons parade past the town hall

A colourful line of lanterns decorate the quarter

Going round the gates of China town

Of course, you’ll hear the sounds of gongs and drums

Now and again broken through by fire crackers

Some might say your

Common garden horror flick at Halloween is enough to

Accelerate your heart beat – but

Really, it’s after the festivities of Christmas and New Year

You’ll really scream out – stay off the scales!

New Years Day

They celebrated a new decade with a bit of a bang

in the air rose the golden streamers

new year arriving as they lit up the midnight sky

sensational colours illuminating the city

everyone watching as the clock sounded and they

lit up the sky as colourful as a Christmas tree

#Christmas #Hidden #Sweets

7th January 2019

I received an extra present yesterday.

I’d been wandering what dad was going on about when he mentioned an extra present at the end of Christmas time

I’d enjoyed seeing the brightly coloured baubles on the Christmas tree, especially the new larger ones. They were twinkly inside. I just guessed they were part of the decoration

Time came and each of the baubles came off the branches of the tree

and Dad told me of his secret….The twinkly baubles actually contained SWEETS. The foil wrapping reflected the lights off the tree

and in one of the big round baubles , all coloured red was my special surprise – a bag of vanilla fudge.

Stop press….it’s not just my dear old dad hiding stuff in baubles. My provider of hot chocolate has been at it too…delivered on 7th January. so now there’s another metal bauble for the Christmas tree.

#newyear

Since the bells chimed at twelve

Dads been keeping a closely guarded secret

It’s been cooking slowly in the oven

While side dishes bubble away on the hob

Table set, in all its finery

Just waiting for the star attraction

To make its grand appearance

New Years Day

#newyearseve #newyearsday

Salford, 31st December 2018

Midnight….Happy New Year!

The final night of 2018

Draws in a brand new year

Called out from the east

And working it’s way round the globe

The fireworks and chimes

Bring in a new dawn

Fresh thinking , fresh plans

Across the lands, grow as the sun says hi

As the new wind blows, to the new year say hello

As we wave the old one goodbye
