Chinese Spring Holiday
Liam's school is an international pre-school and, as such, is big on diversity and multi-culturalism. Right now, he's the only American at the school, but he's got kids from all over the world in his class. As Mauritius is a diverse and multi-ethnic society (Mauritians come originally from India, China, and France/England and practice a wide range of religions), the teachers try and expose the kids to a bit of everything.
Earlier in the year, he dressed up for Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights (no, they didn't make the kids pierce themselves for Cavadee....). This week is the Chinese Spring Festival and the lucky little guy gets to wear this 100% polyester getup --direct from China!
