Coming Soon on January 10, 2022
Here’s a quick explanation of the tiers.
Top Tier – Chinese New Year is all about wishing wealth and prosperity to each other. The minifigure depicted here is Caishen, the God of Money/Prosperity, and he is often worshipped in hopes that he’ll bless you with wealth in the new year.
Middle Tier – The left habitat sees preparation for Chinese New Year underway, with banners and sticker greetings being hung up on the entrances, as well as a mandarin tree. Mandarins are significant because the Chinese word “kam” is a homonym for mandarin, and gold, so the act of giving mandarins as a gift is akin to giving gold to each other.
The right habitat is the Chinese New Year tradition of visiting grandparents, who will gift red packets filled with money to children, and the unmarried. I LOVE the little LEGO paper bag in this module!
Bottom Tier – on the right is the couple from 80107 Spring Lantern Festival, who again are in matching outfits. The girl looks like she’s cleaning their home, an important custom because you do not sweep on Chinese New Year, as you might sweep away your prosperity and good luck. The man is also seen holding a colourful feather duster.
The middle module sees a traditional Chinese stall, selling toys and figurines on sticks, and the right module sees the family from 80101 Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner watching variety shows on TV, staying up late (the clock shows 11:59pm) as they await the New Year!
