Lunar New Year Flower Arrangements

Yes, I’m 4 months late on posting this.  Lunar New Year 2017 has come and gone! Better late than never!

Tet as my family would call this awesome holiday comes by once a year marking the start of a new year. 2017 is year of the Rooster/Chicken. How do know if you are a Rooster? If you were just born or turning 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72…keep adding 12… then 2017 is your lucky year. Your Zodiac animal repeats every 12 years.

SOME FACTS ABOUT LUNAR NEW YEAR

  • The most important social and economic holiday through out all Asian countries. This holiday is even more important than Christmas.
  • Lunar New Year (Chinese New Years or Spring Festival) is marked by visits to family and friends, special meals, fireworks, and gift giving.
  • This holiday is a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting.
  • Elders will give out money to children in little red envelopes called lai see for good fortune. In fact, many of the rites carried out during this period were meant to bring good luck to the household and long life to the family, particularly to the parents.
  • The entire house should be cleaned before New Year’s Day.  On New Year’s Eve, all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans and other cleaning equipment are put away.  Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year’s Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away.

My flower design inspiration for this post was inspired by this wonderful event called Tet (Lunar/Chinese’s New Year).

Traditionally during the 3 days of Tet/Lunar New Year, I am suppose to bring a large serving platter consisting of various food/treats to my relative’s house for the gathering, but this year I am bring flowers. Who doesn’t love a beautiful fresh flower arrangement!  Enjoy and Happy Lunar New Year!
