Playing a significant part in Chinese culture, red represents happiness, success and good fortune, and is also considered a lucky colour. That’s why you’d find red on almost everything around the house during Chinese New Year celebrations — from lanterns, red packets, and paper-cuttings to decors and even flowers. Superstitious or not, it is always a good idea to don a touch of red whenever you are out visiting family and friends during the festivities.
