As we celebrate the beginning of 2019, we turn our attention to the Lunar Calendar. Last year we wrote about the Chinese New Year tradition to clean out the old and welcome in the new. A long-observed Chinese New Year tradition, every inch of the house should be cleaned to remove bad luck and prepare for a new start.

After cleaning, it is also Chinese tradition to buy new things, from new furniture or new dinner plates. Welcome in the new year with new items which also help to prepare your home for the traditional family reunion dinner. Home-made feasts include fish and dumplings as a sign of good fortune and prosperity. Visiting friends and family during Chinese New Year? Don’t forget to bring gifts including fruits, wines, teaware and of course, red packets!
