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.

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 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 breathtaking fireworks that light up Hong Kong’s cityscape on the second day of the new year. It is no wonder that this 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 New Year. The colour gold or shades of yellow mimics gold and has become a symbol for wealth in 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. But for those celebrating the Chinese New Year for the first time, avoid a sartorial faux-pas by wearing red at all times. Many stores are closed during this period but our site will always be here for you.
