During this 15-day celebration, homes are adorned in red decorations with popular themes of good fortune, happiness, wealth and longevity. Families also exchange money in red-paper envelopes (hung-bohws), wish peace & happiness to each other and reconcile all grudges.
As you can tell, red is an important colour when celebrating Chinese New Year.
For us, an important tradition is to buy something new and preferably in the colour red. We are all decked out in red today. I will have to take a picture of our 'red' from today... for now, here are two pictures from last year of all of us in our red!!

Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year from my family to yours!! Kung Hei Fat Choy!
