Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is the most important holiday in Chinese culture. Just like any other festivities, it also involves an array of vibrant traditions that have been widely embraced by many countries across the world.
Here in the Philippines, for instance, we partake in the celebration by means of feasting on traditional Chinese dishes, crowding the streets of Binondo (Chinatown) to watch special performances such as dragon and lion dances, and handing out red packets or envelopes containing lucky money to our family and friends.
Meanwhile, others celebrate the Chinese New Year by decking their homes with various red decorations. From Spring Festival couplets to paper cuttings of both fú (lucky) and xǐ (double happiness) characters to red candles, it is deemed that daubing every space and corner of the house with touches of red attracts happiness, good luck, and good fortune.
