Chinese New Year

Published: 27/01/2017

Of all the Chinese festivals, the Chinese New Year is the most detailed, colourful and important festival. It’s the year of the Rooster this Chinese New Year, which is happening on the 28th January 2017. Roosters have lucky numbers 5, 7 and 8 and also have lucky colours gold, brown and yellow according to the Chinese Tradition.
Chinese New Year’s Eve is the most important dinner for the Chinese, as it is a time when all the family reunite. Fish and dumplings are generally served as these two dishes signify prosperity. Around midnight, fireworks are set off as it is again tradition, to warn off bad spirits. As part of the tradition, married couples give money to their families and friends in red envelopes for good luck and fortune. 
The New Year is a time for one to make new resolutions, make amends from the previous year. Everyone wears new clothes and put on his/her best behaviour. It is considered disrespectful to tell a lie, raise one’s voice, use foul language, or damage anything on the first day of the year.
From all the team at City Living London, we would like to wish you Xinnian Kuaile (Happy New Year).
