One point three billion people in China and their relatives throughout the world have been celebrating Chinese New Year this weekend. Its the Year of the Dog and 4703 in the Chinese calendar. The starting day varies because it requires a New Moon and ends with the full moon and Lantern festival 15 days later.
Luckily this house is clean because the Chinese would put away all brooms, brushes, dusters and so forth so they don't accidentally clean away good luck. The firecrackers send out the old year and welcome the New and doors and windows are opened to ensure the old year goes and the new one can get in.
It is the Chinese custom to think in the positive and therefore set a positive agenda for the new year.
