Chinese New Year
A Dragon Dance to welcome the New Year
Ferocious, furry face
Cymbals clang to scare off evil spirits
Yummy "Nian Gao" New Year cakes
Lucky red envelopes filled with money for kids
The "snap-bang-pop" of firecrackers scare away bad luck
Wearing red and gold clothes is a New Year tradition
Tangerines symbolize gold and good luck
Fragrant peach blossoms for a fresh, new year
Wall hangings wishing "good luck" and "fortune"
Red and gold New Year sweets
The Monkey King wishing everyone a Happy Year of the Monkey!
