Chinese New Year Symbols of Prosperity (Add On)

Today is February 8, 2016 and it's Chinese New Year – Year of the Monkey. 



Adding on additional content from my post from 2015, when the new year was celebrated on February 19th. Here is a little more info about the cultural traditions and symbols of prosperity. Last year the spotlight was on flowers as an important part of the decorations for the Chinese New Year celebration.  This time it's on fruit.  Tangerines and oranges to be specific. 

"The bright orange color of the fruits also symbolizes 'gold'; hence it has an auspicious meaning to bring in good luck and wealth."
