The Lunar New Year hits Sydney





On the eve of the Olympics and the week before Valentine's Day, the Sydney shops have pulled out all stops to remind us the Year of the Dog is about to begin.












I love the Lunar New Year celebrations - and the year of the dog seems to have brought out the cuteness around town. With still a week to go, I can't wait for all the 'official' decorations to come out around the city!







Do you celebrate where you are?

  11. The year of the dog! Yes, I bet a lot of cuteness will abound! Those suspended pups looked like real dogs! Such a cute idea, but I sure hope they weren't real.

    1. Very realistic sculptures. I imagine it would be messy and dangerous for shoppers if they put up real ones! Ha!
