Hello everyone! We are almost reaching the end of the Year of the Water Tiger and in 2023, we will welcome the year of the Water Rabbit. The fifteen days of the Chinese New Year start from 22nd January 2023 to 5th February 2023.
You might be wondering why do Chinese people fill their homes full of Chinese New Year decorations. Basically, it’s to fill their house with plenty of good wishes e.g. the whole year brimful with happiness, good health, wealth, prosperity etc. It is equivalent to how western cultures decorate their houses with Christmas decorations and ornaments with wreaths, candles, mistletoe etc. Usually, we hope the new year will bring good health, wealth and prosperity! Hence we love hanging a lot of decorations around the house.
