Chinese New Year is fast approaching, even though I am not Chinese, I will be buying some Tikoy for good luck. They said to roll some oranges from outside to inside of the house for good luck as well. So what are the foods that could bring good luck and good health?
Whole Chicken: It symbolizes togetherness of the family.
Noodles: Long Life but don’t cut them as it brings bad luck
Spring Rolls: It represents wealth due for its shape as it is similar to gold bars
Clams: It also represents wealth because of its resemblance to bouillon
Pomelos: symbolizes abundance
Since I will grocery shop tomorrow I will try to buy at least noodles or Pomelos of course Tikoy to bring us good luck this year. I know some of it is not true but it doesn’t harm me or anyone to buy foods that according to Chinese bring us fortunes and health lucks.
