This Is A Chinese Dragon Costume

When it is the year of the monkey or the year of some kind of animal. They would put on a dragon costume like this one and they would party all night long and they would have fire works and music playing (its kinda like New years eve but its celebrated differently).

The C.P.R

Canada needed a rail way to go to one side of Canada to the other because of all the free farms. So Andrew Onderdonk ,from New York was given permission to build the C .P .R leading all the way to Port Moody to Eagle Pass, near Revelstoke,British Columbia. The land was mountainous. Between 1881 and 1884, as many as17000 chines men came to B.C to work as labourers on the C. P .R . The chines were payed $1.00 a day, to work at the C.P.R . But white people got payed $1.50-$2.50 per day.

Superstitions

If you hit a person with a broom you will get bad luck for life.

If you eat ear wax you will lose your voice.

If a dog howls for a few hours a night that means that a person died so wear.

If a baby cries for no reason that means that there are ghosts and that the baby is disturbed by them.

The End

I hope that you had fun watching me and have a good day.
