The Year Of The Dragon

The Year of the Dragon - the most powerful Chinese Zodiac sign - starts on Sunday.  Millions of families will come together to feast and celebrate as the dragon breathes life into the New Year.

It's the Year of The Water Dragon - the mystical creature that stirs excitement for it's strength, luck, intensity and vitality.  It's also a sign of authority.

Not only is it called Chinese New Year, it is also called the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival and is celebrated by Asian populations worldwide.

It is a 15-day marathon of spending time with the family, of feasting and of giving thanks.  There are different customs but most families will gather on New Year's Eve to clean the house, feast on dumplings, and set off fireworks to usher in the New Moon.  The homes are cleaned and decorated with blossoming flowers that symbolize new life, and tangerines and candy trays that bring good fortune and happiness in the year to come.

Gung Hay Fat Choy to all!!!  It's going to be a great festival and if you get a chance, please join in and see what it's all about.  The Toronto Harbourfront Centre, Scarborough Civic Centre, Chinese Cultural Centre in Scarborough...there's so much and a lot of it is free.

After doing some searching, here are some DO's and DON'Ts:
-DO clean your house before New Year's Eve to rid of the previous year's bad luck
-DON'T sweep your house on New Year's Day (you could be sweeping away good fortune)
- DON'T wash your hair on New Year's Day
- DO wear reds and yellows (colours of good fortune)
-DON'T curse
- DON'T use scissors or knives on New Year's Day (this could cut off good fortune)
- DO settle your debts before the new year
- DO eat whole fish (abundance), chicken (prosperity), and dumplings (health and fortune)
- DON'T cut noodles
- DON'T cry on New Year's Day.

Well, enjoy and have a wonder celebration !!!
