My son Scott and grandchildren Bessie, Bodhi and Elsie carry lanterns up the hill behind my house, Plumtree - Light in the winter darkness
They practice the old Tibetan traditional greeting of sticking tongues out. This has always been considered a mark of respect in the Tibetan culture.
Of course cultures differ. When I demonstrate this to groups of English school children at school talks it leaves children excited and teachers uneasy!!!
May the tradition of "Peace on Earth" never die...
Old Traditions Live On!
