New Year's Traditions Tag

I received a tag from Hazel, this being my first tag in my blogging life. Very simple, person who been tagged only need to answer one question as below:
What are some of your new year’s good luck traditions?
Rules :Copy the person and persons’ names that sent it to you and add your own at the bottom of the list. It really helps to build community.Lets start it here!
1. My mom used to collect some coins and when the new year comes she put the coins in a bowl and shake it to create sounds. She said its good luck for money throughout the year. And also wearing dotted dresses on new year don’t know why. CC/chalyza/keep
2. My old folks always told us to avoid spending money on new years day. They said, once you spend on the first day of the year, you like to spend the rest of the year.Behind d Scenes of ME/ Retchel’s Pure Life /A little bit of me
3. I grew up believing that if you have some money on your pocket (whatever you’re wearing) come New Year’s eve it will ensure steady flow of income throughout the year. The other belief is that the main door of the house should be wide open come New Year’s eve so that good luck will be ushered in. Juliana of MY WORLD and JULIANA’S LAIR.
4. I don't have any traditionals during New Year. Juliana RW
5. I have keep a RM50 note which the serial number is begin with number 8 and end up with number 8 also, between the number, it’s not encourage to have number 4 and number 0. By doing this we will have steady income throughout the whole life. It’s not easy to find such note. Another ways is to keep your “Ang Pao” in your pocket or put it inside your pillow on the New Year eve before you sleep. Hazel
6. I don't know any traditions during New Year (1st Jan?) as no one tell me before. But if Chinese New Year, I can tell you a lots, which we called taboos like what the eldery told us:
~ Not to let the container that used to keep the rice be empty
~ Not to break any thing, like glass or glassware, if do happen, please say: "富贵花开, 越碎越平安!"
~ Not to sweep the floor & wash the clothes during the first 3 days of CNY
~ Not to scold or beat the childs
~ Not to wear black colored clothes and etc. Amei79
