Welcome the Year of the Tiger on February 1st!

Chinese New Year Traditions for Good Luck | Veteran Car DonationsBillions of people around the world are set to begin 15 days of festivities on Tuesday, February 1st. 2022, as they celebrate the Chinese New Year — the biggest and most widely celebrated Chinese festival in the world. This year, they’ll be welcoming the Year of the Tiger.

Also called the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year, the Chinese New Year welcomes the beginning of a new year based on the traditional lunisolar calendar year.

The celebration centers on traditions such as leaving the bad of the previous year behind, worshipping one’s ancestors, exorcising evil spirits, and praying for a good harvest.

The Chinese New Year festival has been celebrated for thousands of years in China and Chinese communities elsewhere. People perform colorful rituals such as the dragon dance, flower market shopping, the lion dance, and more.

Some traditions followed during the Chinese New Year are believed to attract prosperity for the year ahead. Veteran Car Donations lists six of these good luck traditions:

  1. Clean the house.

People who follow Chinese New Year traditions clean their houses before New Year’s Day to clear out any bad luck or ill omens from the previous year.

  1. Wear something red.

In Chinese culture, red is a color for good luck, happiness, vitality, and long life. Wearing red clothes on New Year’s Day is believed to attract good luck.

  1. Eat “lucky” foods.

Followers of Chinese traditions eat foods that are considered lucky in Chinese culture. This belief is based on the food’s name, appearance, and nature. Lucky foods include fish, tangerine, oranges, and noodles.

  1. Don’t cut or wash your hair on New Year’s Day.

Washing or cutting your hair on New Year’s Day is believed to wash away your good fortune or cut it short. If you have to cut or wash your hair, followers of Chinese traditions may advise you to do it before or after New Year’s Day.

  1. Open your windows.

Opening the windows of your home on New Year’s Day is believed to attract good luck and blow away the bad days of the previous year.

  1. Don’t sweep the floor or take out the trash on New Year’s Day.

If you sweep the floor or take out the garbage on New Year’s Day, it’s believed that you’d be sweeping away wealth and dumping prosperity away from your life.
