The predominant colours of the fifteen-day long New Year celebration are red, for good luck, and gold, for wealth and happiness. It is a spectacular festival of sound, bright colours, and exotic flavours. I hope everyone will take part in our celebrations here in Hall, and I encourage you to visit Chinatown to experience some of the exciting events taking place there.
I wish everyone celebrating this special festival peace, prosperity, and good health in 2013. May you realise your ambitions and all your wishes be fulfilled.
Gung hay fat choy.
