Top 5 Chinese New Year Superstitions:
1. House Cleaning before New Year – Sweeping and cleaning should be done before the New Year’s Day, as it is said that it removes bad luck from house. It is also believed that before the New Year’ Eve the cleaning equipment like brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans and others should be kept away.
2. Use of Firecrackers: Bursting firecrackers on New Year’s Eve is one way the Chinese sends out the old year and welcomes the new one. Also, it is believed that there was a half-dragon, half-lion monster called as “Nian”. The creature would come down from the mountains and scare humans every year. So when people understood that the beast abhorred uproarious commotions, they chose to beat it with the clamor from sparklers.
4. No Washing Hair – Washing hair on New Year’s Day is considered bad luck, because people believe that washing hair sweeps away good luck for the New Year.
4. No Crying – It is believed that if you cry on New Year’s Day you will cry throughout the year. That is why children are not punished on the first day of the year.
5. Wear Splendid Red – Splendid red attire, beautifications are always recommended to bring luck to the New Year.
China has a long history with cannabis. They are one of the earliest know civilizations to recognize the powerful mental and physical benefits of this miraculous plant. “The Chinese Emperor Fu His (ca. 2900 BC), whom the Chinese credit with bringing civilization to China, seems to have made reference to Ma, the Chinese word for Cannabis, noting that Cannabis was very popular medicine that possessed both yin and yang.”
2700 year old cannabis was found within a grave at the Yanghai Tombs near Turpan, China.
