Gold Rush - Chinese New Year Series (3)

Gold symbolizes wealth and good fortune for the Chinese.

As Chinese New Year is drawing near, many decorative items that is gold in colour or shapes (gold nuggets) or symbolizes gold (e.g. mandarin oranges and lime is called "kam" in Cantonese and this word sounds like the word gold ~ also "kam") are on sale. Decorating one's house with such "gold" (fortune) will lead to more gold flowing into the house and its household! Don't be surprised to see abundance of gold decorations when you visit your Chinese friends during Chinese New Year! So, get out and join the gold rush now!!! :o)

I wish all of you lots of good fortune in the coming Year of Rat!

Yayy, may the God of Fortune visit all of us. :) I was given the "You Make My Day Award" and I am now passing it to you. Please visit my blog to collect it. :)

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
