Chinese New Year 2017 – food and festive

On the first day of the New Year people of China are going on a family dinner at the parents’ house. The menu for Chinese New Year 2017 should feature the traditional meals which have symbolic value. Chinese cuisine for New Year’s celebrations is diverse and on the table you should have various meals. Meat and fish are a must. On the the holiday table fish, meat, and if possible a duck should be present so that luck will not be turned away. One more dish is traditional for New Year’s menu – dim sum, which is similar to dumplings. Those are prepared from ancient times for luck. Fish is a must for the Chinese New Year dish, because the Chinese word for “fish” sounds like the word “excess”. Chinese believe that eating fish will bring more money and good luck during the coming year. Tangerines or oranges, sticky rice cakes and sweet rice balls are also traditional.

When choosing your festive outfit keep in mind that rooster loves beauty and grace. Choose bright colors of fire, and avoid the colors of water – blue, black, gray, etc.

Chinese New Year 2017 – how to avoid bad luck during the year of the Rooster

It is believed that people born in their zodiac year offend the Age of God and this is not a good year for them. Those who were born in a year of the rooster (1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005) should put some effort into avoiding bad luck. One of the ways is to wear red clothes as this color is one of the luckiest ones and can drive away bad luck. In addition red color is a symbol of prosperity, loyalty, success, and happiness. If you wear Jade accessories during your zodiac year, pendants, earrings, rings, or bracelets, is another way to ward off bad luck.
