CHINESE NEW YEAR IN HONG KONG
Undoubtedly the biggest festival in the Chinese lunar calendar, rising anticipation amongst the people of Hong Kong manifests itself weeks before the actual holidays start. Celebrating Chinese New Year in the city of Hong Kong means to celebrate with a unique fusion of modern fun and ancient Chinese customs. Busy streets are festooned with vibrant festive decorations and traditional CNY music can be heard at every shop throughout the city. The evening preceding the start of the public holiday, or otherwise popularly known Chinese New Year Eve, is generally an occasion for Chinese families to gather for an annual reunion dinner. The festival extravaganza in HK kicks off on New Year’s Day with a parade featuring a dozen floats, dancers, jugglers and marching bands, followed by breath-taking fireworks that light up Hong Kong’s cityscape on the second day of the new year. It is no wonder that this Chinese spring festival is a hit amongst everyone.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL IN RED
The city is awash in hues of red and streaks of gold. But what is the importance of these colours? Red is an auspicious colour that is thought to bring about good luck, commonly seen at weddings and during the Chinese Lunar New Year. The colour gold or shades of yellow mimics gold which is a symbol for wealth. Displaying or wearing them especially during this time symbolizes wealth for the coming year. The importance of the colour red has its origin in scaring off a mythical beast called the Nian, and is believed that red will also bring good fortune to the wearer. For those who wish to inject an element of red in their ensemble to ‘protect’ oneself from Nian and to receive good fortune, take your pick on our colossal collection of clothing in all shades of red when you shop online with us; from ruby slippers, coral dresses and maroon scarves, your options are endless.
Ushering In The Chinese Spring Festival
There are Chinese New Year traditions and customs that are passed down from generation to generation, with most of them ensuring that good fortune comes to the family for the coming year. Ushering in the New Year typically involves giving the house a thorough clean, decorating the house with Chinese New Year decorations, giving red packets containing money to children, visiting relatives at their homes and of course, eating Chinese New Year food that consists of dishes that signify wealth and other good tidings. This is also a time when Chinese New Year greetings such as Gong Hei Fatt Choy are at the tip of everyone’s tongues.
