Happy 2016 everyone!
How time flies, It's just few weeks away from Chinese New Year! This year, Chinese Lunar New Year will fall on February 8. It is an annual celebration marking the start of the year according to the Chinese lunisolar calendar. Celebration in the air! There's so much to see, eat and experience. It's time again for dragon dance, lanterns, fireworks, fun and festivities.
Here's some fun facts about Spring Festival Taboos.
Things we should avoid during the first day of Chinese New Year.
Being one of the traditional festivals, it is the time for the whole families to reunite together, which is similar with Christmas Day to the westerners. It is the best time to reunion with each others.
The annual tradition of spreading festive joy and cheer is here once again. Every where will be seen bustling with traditional calligraphy, accompanied by the roaring sounds of mighty drums. The variety of food and material goods on display reflects the wish of a prosperous New Year by the Chinese people and their families.
Of course, Chinese New Year is incomplete without traditional hampers. Every year, It is a MUST for me to bring home for my family and my loved one. I always think that it is so much blessed to give than to receive. GIVING, Not only is the choice of gift important in Chinese culture, but how much efforts you've put on it, how you wrap it, and how you present it are equally important.
Chinese New Year is the perfect time to let your family members know how special they are
