New Year is one of the most celebrated occasions around the world because of being a secular celebration, and the fanfare and festivity of New Year celebrations are hardly matched up to by any other celebration globally! New Year is a time to bid adieu to the bygones and welcome the coming year with hope and joy. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the New Year, amongst other things, is ushered in with a variety of colours considered to be lucky.
The concept of lucky colours for New Year is part of a long-standing tradition around the world. It is believed that attracting the lucky energy for a particular year helps in attracting good luck in that year.
