I didn't know much about this holiday but I've learnt a thing or two recently and thought I would share with you!
First off I got a lovely gift from a friend for Chinese New Year!
Such a beautiful pashmina, I wore it today and everyone complemented it! Chinese Red Knot Tassel with Bells which thanks to Google I know symbolizes good luck and prosperity.
Then I found this blogger Sally with a lovely Hong Kong Egg Tart Recipe here, yes I would to love to try these but Sally also gives us a quick introduction to some traditions. Notably that elders and married people tend to give the youngsters a Red Pocket. I didn't realise the symbolic nature of the packaging my cute gift came in!
So Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!!
