Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year is fast approaching! Have you started preparing for it yet? I am usually reminded that the festivities are starting once I hear the familiar Chinese New Year songs in the supermarkets – usually right after 25 December! No time to waste on marketing huh.
You start to see a ton of goodies sold all over our little red dot, bright festive decorations, and pussy willows make their yearly appearance. As the countdown to the feasting period begins, Chinatown gets a little more crowded too. 🙂 Sometimes the hectic festivities get to me a bit, but most of the time, I relish the get-togethers and I love the tradition of taking pretty family pictures every Chinese New Year morning!
Preparing for Chinese New Year
But more than the benefits of spring cleaning, Chinese New Year is another festive celebration that we get to learn how to be hospitable and loving. It is another opportunity for us to dig deep into our pockets (ahem) and learn how to be generous in red-packet gifts and feasting. It is also a way for us to be reminded to decorate our home for God’s glory. Creating order and loveliness in your home will help you to be more willing to have visitors – and who knows how much your warm hospitality will bless others?
This Chinese New Year, let us open our hearts (and homes) to be used for God’s purposes. I’ve created FREE printables to help us do just that: simply download HERE. May it bless you and your families!
Lastly, I’m so excited to share that THESAMSTRESS is generously giving away exquisitely hand-crafted cheongsams to 2 readers – just in time for Chinese New Year!!
