Only 7 Days Until the Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year, Yokohama, 2008
Chinese New Year is a rich and complex holiday, filled with family, renewal, beauty and merriment. The celebration is both the start of the new year and the anticipation of spring.
"Every traditional Chinese household should also have live blooming plants to symbolize rebirth and new growth. Flowers are believed to be symbolic of wealth and high positions in one's career. Lucky is the home with a plant that blooms on New Year's Day, for that foretells a year of prosperity." (from the University of Victoria website)
