The Year of the Rat is approaching. Today (24th) is thirty years old. In previous years, the Victoria Park Lunar New Year Fair was crowded with people. There is no dry goods stall this year's Lunar New Year. Even though it is the last day of the Lunar New Year's Eve, Victoria Park has not seen a "forced explosion" in the afternoon. However, the person in charge of the annual flower stall pointed out that the citizens of this year and the New Year's Day are all buying the annual flower, so the business has increased by 30% compared with last year. The Chinese New Year does not need to be sold at a reduced price.
Some people at the scene felt that the lack of dry goods stalls in the New Year's Eve was very monotonous, and there was no New Year atmosphere. "If you want to accompany the housing company, you will not be able to meet them."

No price reduction on the last day: I sell sunburn flowers today
The Victoria Park Lunar New Year's Eve on the last day is no longer as crowded as in previous years, and the passage is widened and loosened a lot. The Lunar New Year's Eve "has become more and more enthusiastic" in the past, but the flow of people after the night this year is less than during the day. Most of the citizens present were family-sized, and many wore masks. Miss Su, who sells lilies, described the market this year as "excellent, the best business for ten years this year." She said that in the past, dry goods stalls would use loudspeakers, so it would be "loud" and customers would hardly hear them selling; and this year, although there was no flow of people, there was a narrow aisle, but elderly people in wheelchairs could also come. New Year's Eve.
Miss Su also said that "nine out of ten people will buy crickets" during the Lunar New Year's Eve this year, but many people in the past only couldn't afford to buy, so the business increased by 30% compared with last year. On the last day of the Lunar New Year's Eve, many stalls will have discounts on sales. She smiled and said, "Ghosts have reduced their prices. I sell sun-flowers today."

Mr. Ou, who sells oranges, also said that the overall business this year has increased by about 5% compared to last year. He believes that the citizens of this year's New Year's Day are "who are interested in buying flowers. Why not ask for a price?" Although the business has improved, he still does not expect to sell all of the oranges, so he has to reduce the price by about 30% to 40%, and the unsold oranges will be handed over to the FEHD for processing.
Mr. Zhang sold large peach blossoms during the Lunar New Year's Eve. He complained that the business had been reduced by almost half last year. He believed that in addition to the decline in business due to reduced traffic, the main reason was the poor economic environment. "Bags are instigated." He said that due to poor business, peach blossoms were sold at nearly half the price today.

Ms. Chen went to the Lunar New Year Fair with her family. She thinks that this year's Lunar New Year's Eve has no dry goods stalls. She also laughed and said that she had been going to the New Year's Eve in previous years, but this year she didn't plan to come, just because she had to accompany her family to buy the annual flowers. She also does not intend to spend in the New Year's Eve.
Ms. Deng and her family went to the New Year's Eve to buy the annual flowers. She planned to spend 300 yuan on orchids. She believes that this year ’s Lunar New Year ’s Eve has loosened a lot. In previous years, it was because of overcrowding. Only in the New Year's Eve in Mong Kok, this year, she prefers to hang out at the Lunar New Year's Eve because of the reduced traffic.
