Chinese New Year is on its way and the tape wechat'a, weibo qq and already full of congratulations (read, What do you wish for the new year Chinese). Today, a huge portion of the world's population will sit at the banquet table, to eat dumplings with the whole family, congratulate each other with the arrival of spring.
Of all the traditions associated with the Chinese New Year I like the most
red envelopes decorations on the doors, New Year cards, tree of tangerines.
Tradition of giving small gifts, usually 红包 (hongbao – red envelopes with money), some young Chinese believe burdensome, especially, if you do not earn a lot, and to each other, colleague, member of the family need to give a few bills. Well, and for children – it is always a holiday, Many of my students told, I adore the new year and hunbao.
A window or a door in the house to hang hieroglyph, similar to the above, or one of those, that bring good luck. At our house hung a picture with happiness – Blessing (FU).
You can also say, that is a blessing, And, you can hang it upside down and it would mean, that happiness has come into your home. There are a couple of popular characters in the series, and even in wishing – Blessing (Lu) и life (Shout). Connect the characters together and get good greetings: Gods – happiness, prosperity and longevity!
In Kuala Lumpur, where the first time I've seen this celebration, Chinese squib – ward off evil spirits. It was loud, and at temples crowded poor, and go from there people gifts to their red envelopes. A few hours after midnight on the street market area Petaling (Chinatown) was already very quiet.
The following year, we had to get to the New Year in Hong Kong, where we walked around town and did not notice riotous celebrations, such as on television on January 1. We have seen family dinner at a restaurant in New Years Eve. In the morning we saw the crowds, when we went to one of the temples of Hong Kong. On the morning of Hong Kong people have asked their gods of good luck and prosperity. Вечером, first day, new year we looked gorgeous hits in the central streets of Hong Kong.
And last year, as in the, we celebrated Chinese New Year outside of China. Have an opinion, it is the best option, because everything is closed for the holidays, Business costs, especially hard, if still need to get on a train somewhere – snapping up tickets for three weeks, the day of the sales.
