Fish and chickens are the main dishes which have auspicious meanings and bring good luck to the coming year. For interior decoration, upside down Chinese character "Fortune" (pronounced Fu) is always popular, which is hanging on the window in this house. Paintings of fish and peonies are on the wall above the traditional stove. An incense burner above the stove blesses the family. Red is the lucky color. So the red peppers are hanging, and women wear red clothes. Plenty of wines and fresh fish for the celebration of New Year. Kids are firing firecrackers in the backyard in snow. Big steamers are cooking delicious food, mom is always the busiest one through the new year. By the stove is a vat for water.
