The Lunar New Year is a single of Hong Kong's most significant and well-loved holidays. Every single year one particular of twelve diverse animals is celebrated, based on the Chinese zodiac. Many of the city's towering skyscrapers are decked out in glittering lights for the holiday. Throughout the three-day celebration, dancers in colorful costumes carry out lion and dragon dances in the streets, malls and hotel lobbies. Traditionally, individuals exchange little, red envelopes filled with income as gifts. Flower markets show up all over the city for the duration of the holiday, promoting plants and flowers with special significance, and shops and restaurants display flowers meant to bring immortality and good luck. The New Year celebration normally begins anywhere from January 21 to February 19, depending on the year. While the holiday officially lasts fifteen days, in Hong Kong it's celebrated for three days, with the New Year's parade taking place on the very first day. January 29, 2006 may be the first day of the forthcoming new year. The day after the New Year's parade a brilliant display of fireworks lights up Hong Kong's popular Victoria Harbour. The fireworks can be viewed from the waterfront or from boats cruising the harbour.
