Countdown: Chinese New Year Traditions
HAPPY CHINESE LUNAR NEW YEAR!
Gong xi fa cai!
Gong hay fat choy!
Eat good food, be merry, play mahjong, give red envelopes to children (to keep evil spirits away)…and most of all, be thankful for peace, good health and bok choy blessings in the coming year!
Many Chinese folks are superstitious especially on Chinese New Year’s Day:
DON’Ts or risk bad luck and sweeping away good fortune!
- Breaking dishes
- Scolding children
- Getting rid of trash (hmmm…compost instead?)
- Saying unlucky or bad omens
