The Preparation:

Before the celebration, people here starts cleaning up their houses...throw things that are old (buy new one). Renovation here and there... houses full of sayings...and not to mention the "beauty salon", double the price when you go there before and after new year. Before, i don't see the logic, later on I learned that they prepare themselves for a new brand lucky year and remove all the bad luck they had previously...

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.
