Many shops and booths in Chinatown are filled with colorful  Chinese New Year souvenirs.   To celebrate the new year and for good luck people will buy presents, decorations, clothing and food.  This particular booth is filled with decorations and toys for kids to help usher in the new year. You can also find”lai see” (red envelopes) that are filled with money and given to children traditionally with and even amount of money most commonly $6 or $8 which is associated with luck in Chinese.  Many shops and people will also over the “lai see” to the dancing lions and dragons for good luck.
