  • The Host of the party is given gifts
  • Red Envelopes filled with Money and Rice are given for prosperity.
  • On the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, every door in the house,and even windows, have to be open to allow the old year to go out.
  • References to the past year are also avoided as everything should be turnedtoward the New Year and a new beginning
  • As David Bowie once said ” Put on your red shoes and dance. New clothes with hints of red are worn.
  • A picture of the Kitchen God is burned for good luck
