A sample of a typical bright red Chinese New Year decor on a white wall. The large word 'Spring' has a smaller word 'Fortune' in its lower half space. Beautifully decorated with red and gold edges, plum blossom flowers, and golden specks. Red is the auspicious colour in the chinese culture. To welcome in the spring, such paper ornaments are traditionally pasted onto walls and at front doors, during the festive season of the lunar new year.
