Celebrating Chinese New Year with Tilda

Today, is Sunday on my country .. Indonesia.
It's mean I have more time to post something I have made yesterday ..
and share it for you my sweet friends ..

On this 23th of this January many of Chinese celebrate the Chinese New Year, that also known as "Spring Festival".
This year I want to celebrate it with my Tilda !!
Just imagine that she was in China .. :)

This year is : "Year of the Dragon" . that believe have so many good luck and prosperity.
Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several traditions.
Chinese New Year's Eve, a day where Chinese families gather for their annual reunion dinner
Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour ...

so for the greeting I pick the Red for the main color :

It is also the tradition that every family thoroughly cleans the house to sweep away any ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good incoming luck
On the Eve of Chinese New Year, supper is a feast with families. Food will include such items as pigs, ducks, chicken and sweet delicacies. The family will end the night with firecrackers.

Whoot .. what is this ??? This is a must on the Chinese New Year!
Early the next morning, children will greet their parents by wishing them a healthy and happy new year, and receive money in red paper envelopes.

Red envelopes are typically given by the married to the unmarried, most of whom are children.
the Chinese give red envelopes with the gold color on them. They give them because red means luck and gold means wealth.

Ooh ... do not forget, Children are the happiest one on the New Year, because their parent will bought them a new clothes, new shoes, many sweets and lots of  yummy food ..
and the most happiest time , when all families gather for their annual reunion dinner!!!
yes .. yes.. playing with the whole family was so FUN!!!

taraaaa ....
This "magic" card hopefully will bring more happiness for the children of my big family in law because we decided not to play with with firecrackers :D

The Chinese New Year tradition is to reconcile, forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness for everyone. 

Gong Xi Fat Choi !!!!

Wish you luck, healthy blessing and peace to all ...
With Love,

Yulis, I have enjoyed reading your description of Chinese New Year. It sounds almost like our "Christmas." What a wonderful celebration and so much fun. My 13 year old daughter adores all things Chinese (food, tea, decor) - I will show her your post. She will enjoy it!

Again, beautiful Tilda creations Yulis. Love the colors and your coloring is very beautiful too! I love the "magic" card. I've never scene anything like it before! How does the color disappear behind the yellow magic paper? Very interesting!

big hugs, Angela
