For Chinese New Year’s Eve, my husband and I went to his parents’ place, where several of our friends joined us for a holiday feast. (Photos and recipes available here!)
Chinese tradition holds that red and gold bring good luck and wealth. So, of course, any proper Chinese New Year outfit must incorporate those colors. I figured my “Fireworks of Love” dress by Trashy Diva, along with some gold accents & accessories, fit the bill perfectly!
Unsurprisingly, being January in the SF Bay area, it was raining. Luckily, I had a bit of blue sky with me. :)
And anyway, I’m not going to let a little rain get me down on a holiday! Especially a holiday that’s all about bright colors, good food, and being with friends and family. :)
So, do you celebrate the Lunar New Year? What are your fave New Year traditions?
Gung hay fat choy!
