It is that time of the year again! Taiwan is a buzz with activity. Chinese New Year is a mere few days away and the atmosphere at the local markets is electrifying. The colors of gold and red can be seen everywhere, signaling that preparations are in full swing for this major festive holiday.
Last year, I got real festive on the blog. I shared a story about receiving my very first red envelope. I wrote a post about the common Chinese New Year customs and traditions in Taiwan. I also explored the legend of the Nian Monster and how it is associated with the Lunar New Year. I discussed the lengths my mother-in-law goes to accommodate the daughter-in laws.
Here are a collection of photos that I have taken over the last week or two of the decorations popping up around town. Hope you enjoy!
