Also known as ‘the Flower City’, Guangzhou boasts a long history of planting and appreciating flowers among its people. When Spring Festival is approaching, people in Guangzhou will gather family members and head for the flower market to buy bunches of flowers and tangerine trees to decorate their homes.

Spring Festival couplets

Ahead of Spring Festival or at the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, people will paste red colored decorations on the door to add festive atmosphere and wish for good health, luck, and fortune. Spring Festival couplets consist of the two strolls hanging on the left and right side of the door, and a shorter horizontal scroll, with a Chinese character ‘Fu’ (blessing) in the middle of the door.
