More Chinese New Year Decorations

Yes, we have been posting quite a bit about Chinese New Year in Hong Kong already. But there is just so much to see that we can’t stop. Until now we mainly focused on showing you stuff related to cute characters that we love so much. But of course there is a lot more to this super important Chinese holiday. So we thought you might be interested in getting some impressions of what everyday things look like at the moment. Because in every place you go and every store you enter you will find some Chinese New Year decoration or special products to buy. So take a look at some more general pictures about Chinese New Year.

Disney, Rilakkuma & Hello Kitty Chinese New Year Decoration

Chinese New Year is almost there and even if you don’t have a clue about it, you can definitely tell that it’s a big thing. At least if you live in Hong Kong, because by now – one week before the celebrations – the whole city has turned into a place of red and gold decorations. And as we have entered the crunch-time of preparing for the festivities, we found a lot of stuff we want to share with you. Because a lot of our favourite characters appear on Chinese New Year decorations.

Especially on Fai Chuns – paper decorations with good wishes that you can hang in your home – you can find cute characters like Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, My Melody, Mickey or Minnie Mouse. Often the characters are combined with other symbols important for Chinese New Year such as mandarines, ingots (gold nuggets) or dragons (2012 is the year of the dragon), which mean good luck or prosperity. Fire cracker decorations (of course no real firecrackers) are also really popular as a Chinese New Year decoration. And the red envelopes or red packets must not be missing either. Those little paper envelopes are passed out during the celebrations filled with money. Usually married couples give them to unmarried juniors, adults give them to children too.

Chinese New Year Hello Kitty Decoration

You can tell that Chinese New Year is approaching. Almost all stationery shops in Hong Kong are covered in red, as they sell thousands of cards and decoration material for that holiday at the end of January. In every supermarket you find tons of special candy to buy as presents. The 7-Eleven convenient stores still have their Tokidoki x Hello Kitty promotion going that we already posted on the blog. But a couple of days ago they also adapted their decoration to the celebration ahead. So now all 7-Elevens have a special Chinese New Year Hello Kitty design. The center of the decoration is the cute Hello Kitty charm on the dragon of the Tokidoki series, as the year of the dragon is coming.

cute Christmas goodies from customers

I received 2 super cute packages in the office from 2 of our customers. One is from berrysprite who made some handmade felt gingerbread men for us and another one is from chocolatepopsicle who made us an amigurumi reindeer. Aren’t they super cute? The gingerbread men cookies will be used as Christmas tree deco when we visit my family in Austria this Christmas. I am sure they will look super adorable on that tree. The reindeer is our newest addition to our office mascots collection and will get a place on my office table. Thanks berrysprite and chocolatepopsicle for those amazingly cute Christmas goodies.
