The Chinese have some traditions that if followed will hopefully increase your good fortune in the New Year.
*Clean Your House – Get into every corner to ensure that you have rid your home of old ghosts and last year’s bad luck. You want to make room for your good luck.
*Spend Time With People Who Matter To You – Make time to be with those close to you, the people in your life who nourish you, make you laugh and appreciate you. It’s a lovely way to begin the year.
*Let Go – Just like you clean your house, clean your mind of old grudges. Carrying hurt into the new year benefits no one and prevents other things from happening.
*Try Eating “Lucky” Foods – Some foods are believed to bring good luck into the year ahead if you eat them at this time.
1. Perhaps the luckiest of all foods to consume at the new year is a whole fish. In Chinese, the word for fish sounds like the word for abundance. How you eat the fish is very important; for a good beginning, middle and end of the year be sure to include the head and tail.
2. An easier food that doesn’t have a head or tail to consume is an orange. Eating and displaying oranges is said to bring good luck and money.
3. My favorite, and I’m willing to celebrate the new year any day with a sweet treat. Consuming and serving desserts brings a sweetness into your life for the new year.
As you can see from these traditions, they emphasize letting go of last year’s sorrow, remembering the importance of people who matter, and moving forward into whatever the universe has in store for us.
Share it with your friends and family :) May 2016 be the best year so far for you !!!
