CNY Fun Facts:

31 January 2014 marks the beginning of Chinese New Year. To help you get in the festive mood, here are some fun facts about this exciting celebration:

Yee Sang : The Symbolic Dish

The popular custom is for all round the dining table to toss the ingredients high in the air with joyful exclamations of “Loh Hey” (toss high). The significance of the tossing is to wish for abundant luck and happiness for all.

Ang Pow: The Little Red Packets of Happiness

Money in red packets or Ang Pow is given by married folks to children, teenagers and unmarried adults – these are the lucky ones those who will continue to receive ang pow until they get hitched. They say that it will bring luck to givers who follow this tradition.
