Chinese New Year 2016

1

Chinese New Year is considered to be the most important festival for the Chinese community in the Philippines. It does not follow a fixed date in the Gregorian calendar, which is widely used in many countries. The celebration stretches to about 15 days with varied observations each day. Usually, the Filipino-Chinese families start by cleaning their houses because it resembles a wish to put old things away and welcome the New Year.

One of the major traditions in Chinese New Year is giving out flowers and bouquets as gifts. A lot of significance is attached to this custom, and the various kinds of flowers given as gifts denote different wishes or signs. Flowers represent wealth and fortune and are lucky to give as gifts.

However, we will give you some flowers that are said to be lucky this coming Chinese new year.
