Hold that thought on washing your hair and clothes:

This may sound odd to some, but, washing the hair during the first day of CNY can wash away the good fortune.

This also applies to doing laundry, as it is best to avoid cleaning clothes during the two days of CNY, to keep the fortunes intact.

Soo, if you haven’t done the laundry yet, go ahead and do it soon!

Avoid meat and porridge for breakfast:

On the day of CNY, it is best to avoid eating meat during breakfast.

This is out of respect to the (Buddhist gods).

As during this time of the year, it is said that all gods are to be meeting each other, and wishing each other happy New Year!

Eating porridge can also bring bad luck as signifies poverty. So avoid it if you can.

Get your colours right:

Colour, plays an important role during CNY.

The colour red is considered particularly auspicious.

So fill you home with as many red colours as possible, as this leads to more ONG!

However, do avoid colours such as white and black, as they are considered colours for funerals, and won’t bring you the luck you need.

But, the real reason why you shouldn’t be sweeping floors during this time, is because it sweeps all the GOOD LUCK and wealth awayyy!

And we know, we could all use a little luck to get by a whole year.
