Muppets Take Hong Kong

Chinese New Year is on its way. To be more accurate we ought to call it Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, to use the Chinglish. Everything turns red to colors of red and gold, businesses close down for a week, people flee the city, and all transportation in mainland is packed as the whole country migrates back to hometowns far away from the coast.
As with all great holidays, it attracts it’s fair share of marketing and sales opportunities:
New Years=Silly Hats
Valentines Day=Lingerie
St Patricks Day=Beer
Easter=donuts, because you’ve finally made it back to church
Ching Ming=Oranges
Halloween=cosplay outfits
Christmas=anything, just grab a receipt with it

Now for Chinese New Year, get ready for the Muppets
