Once the house is clean, red lanterns, couplets, paintings, and cut-outs decorate all areas of Chinese homes in a bid to ward off evil spirits. Friends and families exchange red envelopes with ‘lucky’ amounts of money in them, tasty treats are given as gifts and a fiendish number of fireworks are set off to drive off evil spirits and to signify joy.
