Happy Chinese New Year!
Today the Chinese Year 4712 began, the Year of the Horse. The start of a New Lunar Year is celebrated with colorful traditions, aimed to bring happiness and good fortune for the next twelve months.
One of the traditions is to wear red (red symbolizes happiness and good luck) and so I've accessorized with red today!
