Did you ever wonder why the color red is so popular for Chinese New Year? From red clothing to red lanterns hanging on windows and doors, it’s everywhere.

According to ancient stories, there was a monster called “Nian” who would come out on New Years Eve and devour villagers, crops and livestock. Villagers discovered that this beast was afraid of firelights, blasting sounds and the color red.

The color red was considered to bring good luck and good fortune to all. Lucky for you, you don’t need to defeat a ferocious beast to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

All you need to do is get your red on and attract all the good luck!
