Tomorrow is the Festival of Lights which is the Hindus’ new year. Here wishing all my Hindu friends and readers a Happy Diwali in advanced! 😀
Usually Diwali is the start of all the year end festivals. Next will be Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then come New Year and of course the Lunar New Year after that! Next year, Lunar New Year will be in the beginning of February! Very soon indeed!!
When it is Lunar New Year, most Chinese will be very busy especially when it comes to getting all the things ready (spring cleaning, buying goodies and preparing red packets!) before the big day. My MIL will normally get all her jeweleries ready but guess this coming new year will be slightly different because she has decided to melt all her jeweleries and turned them into gold bars instead as she wanted to invest them later.
So, this coming Lunar New Year, we won’t be putting on any gold jeweleries since I am not a fan of gold jeweleries. I prefer my white gold actually. 😛
