This year the Chinese New Year begins on January 28th 2017. Traditionally known as the Spring Festival, it ends two weeks later with what is traditionally known as the Lantern Festival. In Melbourne Festival sites are planned for Chinatown, Docklands and Southbank and Federation Square.
Homes are now being cleaned to spotless in preparation and ‘the old’ makes way for the “new.” In China every home is proudly decorated with special banners, many in reds and golds symbolising happiness and prosperity.
It is truly a family occasion with everyone preparing for wonderful meals and reunions. Children look forward to gifts and red pockets – red pockets with lucky money.
This year is the year of the Rooster. It promises to be a powerful one. It symbolises a time to move forward. Sticking with well proven paths to ensure success.
