The Chinese New Year

Besides the obvious association of Red with February, Valentine's Day, Red also symbolizes the Chinese New Year.
In tradition, the Chinese New Year is a time to reconcile, forget all grudges, and wish happiness and peace towards everyone.  Families with thoroughly clean the house to sweep away ill fortune and make way for incoming luck.

This year the Chinese New Year falls on February 10th, and it is the year of the Snake!
