Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar, lasting 15 days.

The preparations start two weeks before the New Year and end with the Lantern Festival. Homes are adorned with red lamps and symbols of good luck. Children receive lucky red bags with money, and tangerines considered lucky charms, are given in even numbers. The family leaves the house before the New Year, saying goodbye to the old year. Fireworks and dragon dances accompany the welcoming of the New Year.

Chinese New Year is based on the solar calendar, and Feng Shui traditionally works with the solar year, typically starting around first week of February. Feng Shui considers personal birth charts for optimal results.

The key to the ceremony is positive thoughts and intention. While symbols and gestures matter, the power lies in your will.
