The sign of Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture.
2023 is predicted to be a year of hope!! A quick and skillful creature, the rabbits are considered to be vigilant, witty, quick-minded, and ingenious! They also symbolize new births and prosperity…becoming a western symbol for Easter, Spring and Luck.
Red is the color or symbol of good luck in Chinese culture and also used for new year decorations, especially when combined with gold. How festive, regal and elegant!
There are several traditions and lovely fun…even if you are not superstitious or of Asian descent!
