New Year's Traditions

Tuesday, January 01, 2008

I got this meme from Juliana. I figure, it has to be done now and forwarded because it is kind of time sensitive.

Here goes:

What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?

Copy the person and persons’ names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list. It really helps to build community.

Lets start it here!

*My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why. CC/chalyza/keep

*My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.

*I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in. Juliana of MY WORLD and JULIANA’S LAIR.

* We always lit fireworks (Chinese belief) as part of tradition to scare off "bad spirits" and start the New Year with a blast. Hailey of Hailey's Beats and Bits

Now I am passing this to Liza, Arlene, Rachel and Reche
