Animal Signs at Wat Lao Buddhavong

We attended the July 4th events at Wat Lao Buddhavong for the last 4 years, and surprisingly I didn’t get to take a picture of all the 12 animal signs. I thought I took a picture of the Rat but did a video instead, the Rat is the 1st animal sign. The 2nd animal sign is the Ox, looking at these images, Lee has grown so much from one year to the next.

The 3rd animal sign is the Tiger, notice someone left sticky rice balls on his head, eye, and in his mouth.  This was most likely offered during morning Alms giving.

The 4th is the Rabbit, which is this year.

The 5th is the Dragon,  and the 6th is the Snake, which is Lee’s animal sign, but somehow she likes to take picture with the Dragon. I guess the Snake is too scary looking, it’s behind the tiger image above.

  1. Wow Lee has really grown thru the years. She’s such a cutie pie.

    I like the horse and rabbit. Tiger looks a bit scary and the monkey looks too much like a person. 🙂

    1. Cambree, children grow so fast these days, pretty soon she’ll be as tall as me or taller. 🙂

      It’s funny how we put the sticky rice balls on the animals.
