It’s the year of the Fire Pig which according to Chinese calendar comes only every after 60 years! Unlike the western calendar, I did not prepare for it. Honestly, I am so confused with the Chinese custom of how and what to set up on the eve and first day of the new lunar year so as to have a promising and auspicious whole year. You would probably go broke if you would buy all the lucky charms that the Chinese belief dictates.
As far as the first day of the Chinese New Year is concerned, all I did today was do my usual Sunday ritual, i.e., do the laundry, iron a mountain of clothes, shine my shoes, clean my bathroom, attend a Sunday Mass and watch a lot of TV.
