Lisu New Year 2018 in Soppong
 
 
 
Lisu New Years Dancing
The Lisu New Years dancing ceremony is when the Lisu girls dress up in their finest, and often where they meet prospective husbands. Eventually, interested boys (in the background here) will join in the dance with their intended date, and the dance party continues all night long. And all visitors are encouraged to join in! Apart from the amazing headdresses, note the traditional footwear. Lisu New Years begins at the time of Chinese New Year, in 2018, LNY will be celebrated on 16, 17, and 18 February.
