6 Spring Festival Traditions You Need To Know

The Spring Festival rush has begun with an estimated 2.99 billion trips to be made from now until March. A time where people travel far and wide to be reunited with their families across the country.

It wasn’t so long ago that the journeys took days to the rural hometowns, but a lot has changed thanks to planes, bullet trains and online ticket purchasing. Though when it comes to customs and traditions in Spring Festival some things haven’t changed. Here are six things (there’s oh so many more) you need to know:

Cleaning

Perhaps not the most exciting of traditions but cleaning the house is a long-observed custom that’s completed before the start of the New Year. A year-end ‘Spring’ cleaning is a must for every household that wants to dust away the bad luck and get ready for a fresh, clean start.

Shopping

As if we needed another excuse to go shopping! Similar to the tradition of cleaning, purchasing new things whether it’s a piece of furniture, clothes, or cups,  symbolizes the welcoming of new things and a new year. Food is also on the list when it comes to shopping, with nuts, fruit and sweets being on the tea table of almost every household.

Eating Dumplings

Okay, now we’re talking! Perhaps this is just a normal day for most of us but dumplings is an important food during Spring Festival, as mentioned in yesterday’s article – dumplings symbolize wealth. Although the consumption is the highlight, making the dumplings is also one of the first moments immediate families will gather together.

Spring Festival Couplets

It’s difficult to miss these as nearly every household will stick or hang them outside their door. In ancient times it was just a piece of peach wood that was hung outside and thought to deter bad omens. Nowadays the expression of good wishes will be written on with two vertical scrolls and a horizontal scroll at the top, usually matched with the “Fu” character that is stuck on the door.

Firecrackers and Fireworks

If you’re staying in the big city then you’re going to be a little disappointed, as the local government has banned fireworks in an effort to tackle air pollution and injuries. If you are however venturing into the more rural areas and towns then expect a tyranny of fireworks and crackers lighting up the skies and deafening your souls.

Family Reunion Dinner

If you thought Christmas dinner was a feast, you’ve seen nothing. In many cases family members are separated for up to a year while working in the big cities, and the family reunion dinner is the most important time for all. There will be numerous dishes with a whole fish being a must at any dinner table, and just when you thought it was all over, out come the dumplings!

8 Foods You Should Never Order On A First Date

First dates can be intimidating. You’re not sure whether your outfit is cool enough, or if the other person actually resembles his/her dating profile. At least you can count on some golden rules when ordering dinner. Next time, it’s probably better for your love life to skip on these 8 foods listed below. Unless you willingly volunteer yourself for a disaster!

noodles

We love a hearty plate of Lanzhou lamian, but have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror after chowing it down? Chili oil and sauce splatters everywhere! If you want to show your fascination with local eats, opt for anything else but noodles.

taco

Soft shell. Hard shell. Soft shell wrapped in hard shell. Whatever works best for you, be cautious when ordering tacos on your date as there will be no multitasking. It’s almost impossible to keep your focus on the person sitting across you while keeping the tacos intact.

wing sauce

There are couple of really dank wings deals at bars around the city, but you wouldn’t want to see your date, hands deep, in ranch. Save it for later when you’ve both got accustomed to each others nasty habits.

crag leg small

Chinese people seem to have superpowers when it comes to eating shellfish neatly. Have you seen how your Shanghai friends eat stuff like prawns? Mad skills. But you, my fellow laowai, forget about it.

ate the sun

Indian food can be somewhat tricky on a first date. The cuisine is absolutely divine, but it involves a lot of spices, beans and lentils. Probably a lot more than your tummy could handle. Chat over curry and naan when you’ve already gotten past the awkward phase.

Hot dogs pose an interesting dilemma. Do you bite it just a little? Squish the damn thing in your mouth? Lick the condiments first to stop the dripping? Things might get too graphic, you’ve been warned!

sushi mouth

When sushi is poorly made, it can result in sloppy rolls with all the fillings falling out. Another dreaded scenario – oversized maki rolls that hardly fit in your mouth. Oops!

liquid dinner

Liquid dinner. Need we say more?

Sherpa’s Highlight: The Bund

The Bund, one of the most iconic features of Shanghai that is near impossible not to fall in love with.

Do you remember the first time you laid eyes on the ‘snap-shot’ view of Pudong, now boasting some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers? Magical. While most of us have strolled around the waterfront promenade countless times both solo and with visiting friends/family, one thing is for sure – the energy of this place keeps you coming back for more.
