Then and now: Lunar New Year in Hong Kong
From time-honoured traditions to hi-tech fortune-telling booths, take a look at Lunar New Year through the ages
New technology may have influenced the way Hong Kong celebrates Lunar New Year, but many traditions are still going strong.
One of the city’s busiest temples has rolled out a host of social media promotions to connect with young worshippers over the Lunar New Year.
However, despite the new gadgets, traditional worshipping practices continue at Wong Tai Sin and other temples around the city.
Around the city, calligraphers create personalised fai chun - long rectangular sheets of paper with Chinese characters that offer auspicious messages and blessings.
Red decorations, including lucky knots, lanterns and firecrackers, adorn homes and the lobbies of office buildings.
