Getting ready for the Chinese New Year: For businesses

The Chinese New Year (Year of Monkey) begins on February 8, 2016. Businesses can have some decorations in their shops/stores that can enhance luck and wealth for the coming year.

Having flowers is important. Chinese believe that blossoms bring wealth (花開富貴). To have a nice vase filled with flowers on the cashier counter can promote this luck. A yellow vase with dragon is a good choice. Or a red (RED color means good luck) vase is an alternative.

Placing a plate of gold ingots or a God of Wealth close to the cashier also enhances wealth.

Having a Kwan Kung (God of Business) in the store can bring business success and luck in wealth. If there is a spacious entrance, a big Kwan Kung at the entrance area enhances positive chi of good luck in wealth and business and is also a Guardian against the negative chi.
