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.
