Prompt: favourite celebrations. the colour red has many different implications for each and everyone of us; and here is mine.


by hazelnutangel

it is said in the chinese culture that red is the colour of fortune, that red brings about peace and prosperity

and if you've ever celebrated the chinese new year,

you'll fondly recall the pineapple tarts, the love letters, the bakkwa that adorned every table

you'll remember the card games, the "hello"s exchanged with relatives seen only once a year.

recall the lion dances accompanied with loud clashing of drums, recall the happy families fully clothed in newly bought attire, recall the times when you were younger -

the treasured hongbaos

it is a time for reunion, it is a time for celebration. Perhaps it is my favourite for the simple reason: joy that reaches every corner of every celebrating home
