SHARE THE PROSPERITY THIS CHINESE NEW YEAR

Setting the tone for the Year of the Rabbit this Chinese New Year (January 22, 2023, Sunday) takes more than just auspicious greetings and gifting red packets. There are traditions to observe, taboos to avoid, lucky colors and elements to consider, and the perfect gifts to give out.

We run down simple practices to prepare for the Chinese New Year and special ways to attract good fortune for yourself and to share with the ones you love.


A CLEAN SLATE FOR GOOD MEASURE

In anticipation of New Year's Eve, take the time to clean your home before the 22nd. A clean home welcomes new luck while driving away the bad luck from before. We're also not allowed to clean on New Year's Day, so it's best to keep the home spotless ahead of the gatherings.

A FEAST FOR
GOOD FORTUNE

New Year's Eve, in Chinese tradition, is a special time of celebration. It's reserved for big family gatherings or reunions, where a feast is a must. Bring out all your good China and crystal, toss the noodles as high as you can, and toast to all the good things the Year of the Rabbit has to offer.

NEW LOOKS FOR
NEW ADVENTURES

Dressing up for the New Year is a significant part of the celebration. Beyond looking good for the family photos, dressing in new threads is a sign of respect towards family elders and a symbolic welcome of new beginnings in your life. Think of the colors you'll be wearing for the reunion dinner: red for energy and success, pink to attract romance and love, blue for hope and wealth, and green for prosperity and health.

AWESOME GIFTS FOR AN AUSPICIOUS YEAR

From the iconic red pockets to symbolic gifts, 'tis the season for sincere generosity. For the beauty enthusiast, try a beautiful shade of red lipstick or a sparkly eye palette for all the Spring Festival activities. A new wallet is also a good gift (but only to your wife or kids), especially one in red or green. And tea is a thoughtful present for friends and colleagues. Avoid gifting shoes, sharp objects, anything black or white, or something with the number four (4). Don't forget to get your gifts wrapped through our iconic Rustan's gift wrapping service—available online and in-store.
