Chinese New Year (or Lunar New York) brings out the color red.  As the Chinese consider red auspicious, it can be seen  in signs, in lights, in clothing, in candles, well in everything. Red signifies “reunion, health, happiness, harmony, peace and prosperity.”

Orchard Street in Singapore during this time is entirely red.  Red this, red that, red everything.
