Chinese New Year tends to be a very manic time leading up to the celebrations and festivities which is why I have put together this comprehensive Chinese New Year Checklist for 2019, the year of the Yin Earth Pig (Ji Hai) to hopefully make things a bit more calm in the run-up to Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year brings so many jobs and tasks that need doing around the home and office that need doing and every year I go through the house and office that I tend to forget things that need doing which is why I created a checklist to tick off as I go through all of the tedious tasks and I decided to share it on the website for others to add or change how they like, and the feedback has been fantastic and I am so thankful for all of your kind words.

The list below is the same list that I go through every year during Chinese New Year and this year, I have tailored the checklist to be relevant to the year of the Pig and have included where to place the 2019 Annual Cures and Enhancers and colour suggestions for each different compass sector of your home or office for the year which will hopefully make it a bit easier when going through everything before the start of the year of the Pig. This also makes a great reference sheet to keep handy during 2019 when introducing new furniture or decorations.

Fun facts and advice for Chinese New Year

□   Ensure that the house, apartment, bungalow office or any other building is spotless from top to bottom, to encourage good luck in the coming year.

□   Open all the windows and doors in every single part of the home as this is said to bring in clean, new good luck for the year.

□   Switch on all of the lights in the house inside and out as this is supposed to attract good luck from outside, and if the windows and doors are wide open, it is easy for the luck to enter. The bright lights and open windows are also used to scare away evil spirits.

□   Buy a new pair of slippers at New Year. It is said to stop people gossiping about you, In China, face and reputation are significant.

□   Avoid arguments, using knives, driving too far, and they love to gamble on New Year’s day as they hope to create good luck and wealth. You can read more on this below.
