The nostalgic scent of mandarins and sweet flowers fill the house with a clean slate and blossoming auspiciousness to start the new year. Kids wake up early to greet their elders with well wishes of health, happiness and prosperity in exchange for lucky money in red envelopes, the smell of fresh money ushering in a prosperous start to the new year. Fireworks are set off to ward off misfortune and bring good luck, followed by lion dances, kids running around the neighborhood to wish their elders a happy new year and collect red envelopes, and families reuniting to feast on nourishing good food that symbolizes all the good that is to come in the new year.
