Lanterns light up alleyways. Scarlet red (for luck) paper decorations can be seen adorning hallways, doors and balconies. Luscious mandarin oranges are given in special baskets and bags to symbolize wealth. Red envelopes holding cash are given to the younger generation...The sound of clanging cymbals and drums can be heard resounding through the streets accompanying lion dancing. 5 day weekends are given to employees. On this side of the world, CNY is bigger than Christmas. .

This year was the first year I've ever actually had a chance to observe so many of my heritage's traditions all at once...let alone first time celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year and I've never felt more in touch with my roots ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฎ
