Some things from Chinese New Year

Health, happiness, wealth, joy, luck, and surprises I wish for all my friends and family.

It's the Year of the Ox.

Colourful lucky candies are given out. These are made from peanuts and feature several flavours - cocoa, sesame, coffee and almond.

Cards are sent to friends and family as part of the New Year celebration. This one features a lucky dragon on the front.

Chinese laughing dumplings are supposed to bring happiness, as the cracks in the flour look like smiles. The fried balls are sometimes filled with red bean paste and are usually covered with sesame seed.
