No, no, no!

During the festive season, it is not appropriate to talk about the past year – all thoughts and conversations should be related to the future.

In the first three days of the Chinese New Year, the house cannot be cleaned. Good Gods visit all houses during the New Year and bring happiness and luck, which appears in the form of dust.

Important symbols

A festive outfit cannot combine black with white, since black is a symbol of failure, and white is the color of mourning.

The symbol of death is the number “4”, thus it shouldn’t be placed nowhere – neither on the gift nor on the money. The number of cash bills should be bigger than 4.

Other “don’ts”

Usually, after the Chinese New Year Eve, you cannot buy shoes in order not to cause trouble.

Why? “Shoes” in Chinese is spelled similarly to the Chinese “difficult.”

In the early days of New Year’s Eve, you cannot use knives and other sharp objects as they cut off your happiness.

Hair

Also, in the first month you cannot get a haircut, otherwise failures will pursue all your relatives.

To wash your hair on New Year’s holidays is to wash away your luck.

You cannot be involved in the argument, swear, shout and pronounce bad words.

Also, you aren’t supposed to borrow money. It is necessary to give back all the money that you borrowed in the previous year.
