Year of the Rabbit

Which he finds in the kids' department, where he was grilled by a little guy wanting to get to the bottom of this vision that suddenly appeared. "Are those your feet? wait, there's PEOPLE in there! how did you get in? how can you get out?" and so on.
Dragon looms up for a closeup after escaping the probing questioning of the small reporter.
Bracketing the post with the snow scene caught coming home again.
