Chinese New Year is by far one of the most festive Chinese holidays. It is a major part of Chinese culture because bringing in a new year filled with luck, health and prosperity is one of the most important things to the Chinese. That means the hustle and bustle to prepare for this can take weeks, even months. Here are some pictures I would like to share with you of such preparations. I will also be posting a blog to show the celebration itself as we ring in the Year of the Snake. Enjoy this photo blog and there will be more tomorrow!
