Chinese New Year Day 2

This is the second day of the Chinese Festival Chinese New Year!

  1. 11pm sharp of day 1: Prepare and pray for the fortune god to come down and feast because my house has a business and luckiness is critical for affairs. The time must be 11pm sharp since it is the time that the sky gods come down (Chinese personal belief).  The food that is required are red sagos and rock sugar.
  2. 7am of day 2- You are vegetarian between the morning and noon. You can’t eat untill you feast with your family. The recommended food is vegetarian dish. The ingredients are : Black seaweed, olive oil, bean noodles, tofu and cabbages. My aunt made it and it has a great flavour.  
  3. 8am of day 2- recieve your red packets. Everyone gets it, even elderly people since my dad told me that whenever you have work you should give a red packet to your mothers and fathers to thank them of what they have taught us. After that , stick with your family for the whole day.
  4. The Fortune God
    Bao Liberties- Chinese Red Packets
    Sagos

 

What do you think about sticking together with your family?

      It doesn’t depend on what day it is but I think its the moon/ how the earth orbits because I THINK that the chinese respect the moon (More than the sun I think)

        Hello Sujjinna,

        You’re right! It depends on those traditional Chinese calendars that are in shops and says the 1st of January in the chinese calendar since it is different from the international calendar.
