2014 is the Year of the Wood element, the Wood Horse. The element wood is associated with the color green or bluish green and it is lucky to wear these colors for the new year´s celebration. I love the typical Chinese green colors, like Jade and the color shades of Chinese ceramics.
Color in Chinese culture refers to the various colors that are considered auspicious (吉利) or inauspicious (不利). Green is a lucky color!
The color green (綠: Lǜ) symbolizes nature, growth, wealth and prosperity, harmony, health, sprouting, balance, patience in traditional Chinese culture.
I wish all of us a greener Chinese New Year with lots of happiness, prosperity and health! As I said in my previous post: Be more green and do little efforts in your family to be more eco-friendly and GREEN!
