– at least 8 pieces dates (the fruit, found in the store not e-harmony or
– Money
– Animal Representation for fun (This year it’s the year of the horse)

On the eve of new years, leave money lying around the house, keep the lights on and if you’re the head of the house be home before midnight.   This is a ritual to make the year

On  new year’s day, a few reminders
– Don’t sweep the floors of vacuum (Good excuse not to clean that day but mainly because you may get rid of luck at the start of the year)
– Wear something RED to ward off evil
– Eat noodles (If you want to live long)
