Flavors to Follow: Red

Because Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year are both coming up on Sunday, February 14, 2010, I decided on the color RED for my Flavors to Follow theme this week.  For Chinese New Year, red should be worn as it signifies joy, good fortune and also scares off evil.  And I don’t think I need…
