Happy Lunar New Year - Part 1

Happy Lunar New Year!

It has come to a very important Holiday in Hong Kong for all Chinese to celebrate, the Lunar New Year (also the Chinese New Year). It is one of the  holiday in Hong Kong.

Yesterday was the last day of the Year of Dragon. I went to the flower market in Mong Kok for the floral arrangement for the New Year. People would buy differnt flowers. Gladiolus is one of the favourite choice for the Chinese New Year. It symbolics the sincerity and strength of character

Chrysanthemum is another choice for New Year. Chrysanthemum symbolises perfection, optimism and joy which are important in the Chinese family.

Another one is 五代同堂 (very sorry I do not know the English name for it). It symbolises all family members of different generation gather together.

For me, I have bought some Peach Blossom flowers for the hope of better relationships and lucks.  I especially love the Lunar New Year! Full of joy, peace and warmth.
