BREAK DANCING AT CITY COLLEGE

BY ELIZABETH SKOW; PHOTOS BY STEPHEN LAM AND STEFAN JORA

The year of the boar is here again. The boar is associated with abundance, sensuality, contentment and security. Boars are known as hard workers who like to play hard, too. They can go overboard, at times, and lapse into depravity.

Although customs differ from place to place, some common traditions are: A dinner feast, staying up all night and leaving the lights on. Cleaning one’s home and repainting doors and windows, usually with red paint, are also common traditions.

The Chinese zodiac has 12 signs, and rotates each year, coming back to the same sign every 12 years.

2007 is the year of the board and all the paraders have different types of pig costumes to signify the year.

Children appear to be engrossed in the performance as they watch.
