Chinese New Year Decorations, Traditions & Legends

Last year it was pink blossoms adorning the corner of the living room as well as red and purple lanterns hanging here and there in the house. This year I came back home from my ten day Singapore trip and I was greeted by potted plants & red banners, red blossoms in the living , red-lanterns and pussy willow in a glass vase wrapped with red ribbon.


Read more at about the significance of some Chinese New Year traditions and what I've discovered about the legend of the Nian and how all these celebrations started.

Gong Hei Fatt Choy everyone :-)
