    Cake day: Serve cake or tikoy at home to attract harmony in the family.

    Fruits: On February 18, arrange the round fruits on your table and avoid pears because it symbolizes separation. Also put pistachio, radish cake and peanuts. Prepare a container filled with coins.

    Attire: Buy new items before the Chinese New Year. For protection and luck, dress in red — from outer wear to underwear.

    Relationship: If you are single, on the last day of the New Year’s celebration go to a river, lake or ocean and throw in fruit as a way of attracting a relationship. With each piece of fruit you throw into the water, make a wish and ask for the perfect love match.

    Lucky Industries are those related to WOOD such as textile, garments, environment, paper, print media, logging, furniture, design, manufacturing, and bookstore.

    Ang-pao: Give your children 2 ang-pows, which are small red packets filled with coins on Feb 18 and 19.

    During the day of the Chinese New year, don’t sweep to not ‘sweep-away’ the good luck you’ve just received. Don’t sleep or take a nap on the afternoon to avoid laziness for the whole year.
