Following the year of the rat in 2020 and the year of the ox in 2021, the tiger’s year represents taking risks and adventure. We are waving goodbye to the caution and anxiety-filled years of before. This is the year that we rediscover our enthusiasm and zest for life.
Speaking of enthusiasm and a zest for life, we have partnered with the fine folks at Disney to bring you a selection of gift options that are filled to the brim and meet all the requisite customs that CNY entails whilst adding a smattering the elements that have long been associated with Disney.
We need not say overstate how important Chinese New Year and its celebrations are, and at SK Jewellery, we understand that you may want to present gifts to your closest and dearest.
Let us tell you the significance of the gift-giving tradition and why it remains a cornerstone of the Chinese New Year celebrations.
What does gift-giving represent?
Since the beginning of civilisation, it has been theorised that troglodytes gave presents like unusually shaped rocks and animal teeth to strengthen social connection and show their appreciation to others.
As a custom during Chinese New Year, the practice of gifting has evolved from the humble tradition of giving money in ‘red packets’ or 红包 as it is more popularly known.
Chinese New Year brings with it a wide array of conventions and customs. With their long-standing reverences towards traditions, these celebrations, whilst having abundant joy and blessings, also possess a degree of decorum and etiquette.
The following are things that are to be observed during the festive period. They are:
– Getting the right colours for the gifts
When it comes to gifting during Chinese New Year, the colour of the gift, the wrapping paper and the bag it comes in play a huge role. To symbolise wealth and prosperity, it is best to choose red, yellow and gold.
– Giving gifts in the correct number
The Chinese place a significant emphasis on numbers. Even numbers are an ideal choice when considering your purchases. The luckiest number is viewed as 88. The number 4 is to be avoided as it sounds like the Chinese pronunciation of the number is akin to the word death.
– Gifting and clasping gifts with two hands
This custom shows respect and ties in with the bond building and traditional familial structures; the process of gifting is entrenched in the belief that you are paying homage to your recipient by giving with two hands.
– Work your way through the generations.
It is imperative to ensure that you show your respect by consistently addressing the family’s eldest member and working your way through the generations. It will display a sign of tremendous respect and reverence.
Now that you know what to and what not to do, you can now rest safe with that knowledge and now be able to ensure that you can preserve the age-old traditions while at the same time injecting a contemporary take with our partnership with Disney.
