Choose red lanterns which you can hang both in and out of your house. These can also be used as table centerpieces, so it’s good to get extra pieces.
This practice dates back centuries when people would decorate in red, light firecrackers, and sound cymbals to ward off evil spirits.

As we mentioned above, red is the perfect color to wear for good luck during the Chinese New Year. If you don’t have an outfit in those colors, you can accessorize instead!
Ladies might like this patterned bomber jacket to wear over more neutral colors. On the other hand, men can wear a scarf or cap in red or gold to give any simple outfit a pop of lucky color.
