Spring festival is going soon. Here I want to say something about our Chinese new year’s traditional culture. 1. Does Wish everyone you meet a happy New Year by saying "gong xi fa cai", which translates to: "Have a happy and prosperous New Year!" 2. Wear articles of red clothing because red symbolizes luck. 3. Buy new trousers because the Chinese word for trousers is "fu", (Chinese homonym for wealth) 4. Children should stay up as late as possible on New Year's Eve for it is believed that the later they stay up, the longer their parents will live. 5. Visit family (especially those older than yourself) and friends to pass on your wishes on good fortune for the New Year. (plus kids and single people will receive lai-see lucky red packets full of money.-----this is my favor, i can get money.Haha Something u must not do like this: 1. Don't wear white or black clothing, since they are the traditional colours of mourning. 2. Floors may not be swept and garbage may not be disposed of on the first day of the New Year for fear of casting riches out the door. 3. Don't break any dishes, otherwise you may incur more misfortune for the New Year. In the event of breaking a dish, quickly say " Peace for all time", and the bad luck will be awarded away. Anyway, this is just a little about our culture. Wants to know more about China, why not come here to feel by yourself.
