Happy February AND Happy Chinese New Year!!

 

Since today is the Chinese New Year, I would like you to use RED on your layouts! Red is the traditional color of the holiday because it symbolizes luck and prosperity.

 

The Chinese New Year, or Lunar New Year, begins with the first new moon of the year and ends with the full moon fifteen days later. It is the most important holiday in China and millions of people travel home to be with their families. The Chinese New Year is full of dragon dances, fireworks, feasts, gift-giving, and lantern festivals. Red is the traditional color of the holiday because it symbolizes luck and prosperity. Many families will paint their doors a bright scarlet to bring good fortune in the year to come. According to tradition, each year of the Chinese calendar is associated with one of the twelve zodiac signs: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, or pig.

Here is my layout for the Saturday Color Challenge. And since it is the Chinese New Year, I decided that is what I would center my layout around.
