Chinese New Year is the biggest festival of the whole year. Do you know what traditions we have to celebrate it? Come and find out! (There may be some hints about our gifts.)

Chinese Zodiac:
Chinese zodiac, also called Sheng Xiao in Chinese, is based on a twelve-year cycle. One animal represents a year. The twelve animals are mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Guess what year is 2019? The year of the Pig!

Red Envelope:
On Chinese New Year’s Eve, people would put money into red envelopes and give them to kids. Because “red” is good luck in the eyes of Chinese people. (Almost everything is in red during Chinese New Year!) Kids who get the red envelope would put it under his/her pillow and pick it up the next morning. This is a way to pray for happiness in the coming year.

Staying-up:
Chinese people would stay up all night or at least until midnight on the Eve of Chinese New Year. This is a way to send the old year away and welcome the new year. To make this long period more fun, Chinese government shows a Spring Festival Party on TV at this time every year.

  1. Yes, I am looking forward to the Year of the Pig. It should be a year filled with Peace and love. I am born in the year of the Tiger, but I think if we had ONLY Pig-people here…it would be Peace on Earth.

    Blessings

    1. Happy New Year Elen. Wish you a year filled with happiness!

  2. I love this! My initials are R.A.T. and I happen to be from the year of the RAT (1948, yes, that young). Coincidence? Perhaps.
    Wish you all a happy newyear.

    Best, Rob.

  5. Many blessings to all at this auspicious time! May this New Year of the Pig usher in a time of peace, well-being and prosperity for all.

    I am familiar with Chinese New Year from my friends in China, is a time spent with family,much like Christmas gifts are shared- It begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice and ends on the full moon fifteen days later. Businesses are usually closed during this time,differing in the time being closed,depending on the location in China. Beginning on the second new moon after the winter solstice and ending on the full moon fifteen days later. It is marked by visits to family and friends, special meals, fireworks, and gift giving. Some of my friends is for a period of a week,some 10 days and some over two weeks long.

    Often with visits to family and friends, sharing special meals, fireworks, and gift giving.

    Thank you Every one at Spooky2 and all everywhere,wishing you a blessed time this Chinese new Year!

    1. Thank you very much! Wish you happiness and health in the year 2019.

  7. I was born in the year of the Rooster. I’ve always loved knowing that. Today I am going to a New Year’s celebration here in Portland. I have some red envelopes. I’m going to start using them under my pillow!

    1. Glad to know. Yes, that is what we always do! We put red envelopes under pillow means blessing for the coming year.

  8. I was born year of the Tiger. In San Francisco, about 15 minutes from my home in Oakland, we have a parade every Chinese New Year. Every culture participates as spectators and performers. But the flavor is decidedly Chinese. February is often cold and rainy, but California weather is usually not as intense as most places so we parade anyway. A few of us non Chinese even exchange red envelops

    1. Thank you for sharing, Brenda. We often reunion together for dinner and watch Spring Festival Gala. Then visiting friends and relatives in next few days and exchange red envelops. Happy new year!

  9. Thank you for your wishes, I also wish you all the best in the New Year, the Year of the Pig. It is also my year because I was born in 1959, whose patron is the pig. Unfortunately, in Poland there are no good times for these nice animals because the rulers have prepared a real holocaust for Polish pigs and boars murdering hundreds of thousands of healthy pigs and wild boars under the so-called. prevention, or to prevent hypotensive ASF.

    With a New Year’s greeting

    1. What a pity to hear that. Wish people and nature live in harmony. Happy new year, the Year of the Pig!

  10. Whee!

    1. Hi. As long as you buy Spooky2 products from 1st February to 20th February, you will get a gift bag contains at least one Chinese element! No need to make a notation or enter a certain code.

  12. Happy New Year, I believe it is the year of the Pig and I was told represents the earth and the lucky colour is yellow. It is calculated by naming this particular year after the animal it represents. I think it takes twelve years to come around again with each year being represented by a different animal. Something to do with the star Jupiter I think. It is a time for happy celebrations in China and other Asian countries. We lived in Singapore in the 70’s where my husband was posted. I loved it and can still remember how to greet people at the New Year.
    Happy Chinese New Year to all the Spooky2 team. You would laugh if I said it in Chinese!!!
