Chinese New Years begins Feb. 3 and is a 3 day holiday in HK. I'm not sure if all three days are considered red days or not. Most small shops will be closed and probably the markets too. Apparently the big factories on the mainland close for three weeks so people can travel home for their yearly holiday. Restaurants stay open as this will be their busy time as whole families go out to eat and celebrate. The big grocery stores stay open longer hours to accommodate the people making special dishes. For us school is done on Jan. 28 and starts again on Feb.8.
|Our lobby in tower 7.|
|Dragon, firecrackers, drums, pots of gold, and flowers in the main entrance.|
|It's the year of the rabbit!!|
All this stuff is on the outside of the store on the sidewalk! The store itself is probably only 10x12.

This is the most heard greeting for Chinese New Years, so Kung Hei Fat Choi to you all!
