Chinese New Year to do list.

Chinese New Year always symbolizes a new start. There are little check offs that you must do before the new year. Here are a few things along with a short explanation. Clean your room to symbolize a new start. Cut your hair before the new year because if you do it afterwards you "cut away" your bad luck. You can't shower the day of new years because you'll "wash away" your luck. I take bi monthly showers so we're all squared away with the shower thing.

This year is the year of the Ox. I don't know what that means but I do love me some oxtail stew on rice over at 69 Bayard Street.

- the 28th day in December of the Chinese calendar is the designated day to "clean dirt"

- the 30th day is the designated day to go home and have family dinner
