San Francisco Celebrates Chinese New Year

Flowers and plants filled the streets of Chinatown last weekend while people enjoyed the flower fair. Plants symbolize growth. If a plant blooms on New Year’s Day, this will signify a year of prosperity. The Chinese believe that without flowers, there would be no formation of any fruits to bear seeds for the next generation. Therefore, it is important to have flowers and floral decorations in the home to begin a new year.
