Today is the Chinese New Year, we also call it "Spring Festival", so happy Spring Festival everyone!
On the first day of the new year, Chinese people will put on new clothes, usually in red, to celebrate the new start.
Since it's the Year of the Horse, I picked this sweater with two handsome horses rearing up. Don't they remind you of some artistic horse statues? For the bottom, I chose this purplish red skirt with beautiful hollow-out flower patterns.
In Chinese culture, horses represent honesty and bravery, and thus they have been cherished by Chinese people for thousands of years. We have many idioms that are associated with horses. For example, if you want to wish your friends success, you can say "Ma Dao Cheng Gong"(马到成功). It means to achieve success as soon as you arrive at the battlefield.
It's easy right? My dear friends, I wish every one of you "Ma Dao Cheng Gong" in your career, study and life! Thank you so much for reading!
Happy Chinese New Year, and happy Spring Festival!
