How to be Fortunate in 2015


Chinese people believe that, as the 

Spring Festival is the start of a new year, 

what you do then will affect your 

fortune in the coming year. There 

are taboos for the Spring Festival. 


Some Chinese people believe that they
mustn't do cleaning or wash their hair
in the first three days a that
will sweep/wash away any good luck.
 
Red underwear. You will see
red underwear sold at Chinese supermarkets
and street markets.
Red is believed to ward off misfortune.
