A walk in Chinatown...
Pic2: seeds anyone??😆
Sunflower seeds to Chinese people are what popcorn is to moviegoers. The Chinese character for seed (子) also means child(ren), so sunflower seeds symbolize having many sons and grandsons in traditional Chinese culture.
Pic3-5: Wall of Chinese sausages and some other preserved meat.😳
Pic6&7: Lanterns and other decorative stuff... Chinese New year's decor is basically in red because of the beast called Nian, that lives under the sea or in the mountains. Once every year at the beginning of Chinese New Year, the Nian comes out its hiding place to feed mostly on humans and animals, but during winter since food is sparse he would go to the village. He would eat the crops and sometimes the villagers, mostly children... but the beast is easily scared. It does not like the color red and fears loud noises and strange creatures.
So traditionally, villagers hang red signs on every door, make loud noises with drums, music, and fireworks, and to protect the children, they were given face masks and lanterns as protections.
Pic8: Never enough goodies 🤣
Pic9: Year of the Glutton..oops sorry, I meant Pig 🤣😂 .
Pic10: Mythbuster- Jaywalking... you wouldn't get yourself into trouble for this but that doesn't mean you can just go ahead and do it😉😆🤣
