Happy New Year

Today is the Lunar New Year – starting the Year of the Rat. The big hotel and casino next door attracts a lot of overseas visitors this time of year, and so tries to decorate a little to keep the spirit going. When you walk in the front entry and down the arcade toward the casino there are a lot of banners:

Just at the casino entrance is an orange tree with more red banners. I don’t know the significance of the orange tree.

And over in the new atrium there are more red and gold things hung from the ceiling. Little red and gold packets are hanging from small orange trees placed around the atrium

To all of you, Kung Hei Fat Choi!
