I am a Chinese, so Chinese New Year is a very special time for me. I pay a lot of attention to these 15 days because Feng Shui is mostly about good starts, good tidings and good omens. I always try my utmost best to make these 15 days a wonderful fortnight of celebrations, even though on most days, it’s just my husband and myself! 😂 As per Ministry of Manpower (MOM) website, Chinese New Year (CNY) is on:
****** ASK WEILI**********
With that as a starting point, this is how I mark out “Day 1” to “Day 15” of CNY. There are 4 days that are very important in CNY, in-terms of food. We are Chinese, and eating a lot is the most basic show of abundance, agree?
Eve of CNY = reunion dinner
Day 1 = the start of the New Year
Day 7 = everyone’s birthday (人日）
Day 15 = celebrate the end of CNY with a bang! (十五晚）
Ok then, let’s get started!
农历新年前一天 = 除夕夜，全家团聚
农历新年初一 = 好的开始
农历新年初七 = 每个人的生日 （人日）
农历新年初十五 = 十五晚，要搞到轰轰烈烈！
