I have taken a few “Chinese New Year” related photos during recent strolls. At this time of year noisy firecrackers are set off to chase away bad spirits (leaving the pavements covered in red paper). Shrines get fresh floral garlands, and food offerings are often set out in front of Chinese businesses. Also, many people tie a bunch of flowers (usually orchids) onto the front of their car, and shop fronts get decorated with Chinese figures, lanterns, and red paper.
For those wishing to view dragons – please see my 14 Dec posting “Walking with Dragons”. Just to tempt you I have inserted one of them below.
