Another Chinese New Year is just around the corner and so are the traditions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_New_Year

"Gong Xi Fa Cai", the traditional Chinese New Year greeting.
But the Chinese don't stop at wishing for prosperity - they eat for it as well! 31 January 2014 marks the first day of the Year of the Horse.
This is the start of 15 days of eating and greeting, the period over which Chinese New Year is celebrated.
Air drying and curing various types of meats and homemade sausages outside homes, yards and restaurants is quite a common sight during the build-up to Chinese New Year.

Actually its not a bad time of the year to be around Shanghai and taking daily cruises with the mighty Jialing JH600 sidecar to the townships like Qibao.
Qibao is a town in Minhang District, Shanghai. Its formation can be traced back to the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period, to the Northern Song Dynasty.
The name comes from the local temple, "Qibao Temple": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qibao
