Tag: New Year Tradition

I got this nice tag from Ling.....he,he..I guess what she want to know from me whether I do have Chinese New Year Tradition? If for New Year Tradition(western new year), sorry wor...I don't have one.

Here goes:What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?
Rules : Copy the person and persons’ names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list. It really helps to build community.Lets start it here!

*My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why. CC/chalyza/keep
*My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.Behind d Scenes of ME/ Retchel’s Pure Life/ /A little bit of me
*I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in. Juliana of MY WORLD and JULIANA’S LAIR.
*I don't have any traditionals during New Year. Juliana RW*
I have keep a RM50 note which the serial number is begin with number 8 and end up with number 8 also, between the number, it’s not encourage to have number 4 and number 0. By doing this we will have steady income throughout the whole life. It’s not easy to find such note. Another ways is to keep your “Ang Pao” in your pocket or put it inside your pillow on the New Year eve before you sleep. Hazel
*There are many beliefs but I don’t really follow. To me, to gain good luck, we must radiate positive thoughts and be happy always. (The law of attraction) Jo-N
*If this tag means Chinese New Year tradition, usually I do spring cleaning before Chinese New Year. I will pack those unwanted stuffs like clothes to give away and make sure that our home is spick and span to receive a new year. I think this should be the norm for Chinese :) Ling
*Settle all my debts with family member, so, I will be free from debts throughout the year. Don't sweep floor on first day of CNY (so, I won't be sweep my money away - good excuse of not sweep floor on CNY :) ) Mamajo

And, I would like to hear from Chanel and Chinnee and Wen about their New Year tradition, so, who know, I can apply it if it make sense.......
