China, one of the most ancient cultures across the globe, is quite well known for its rich traditions and customs. At the same time, like most other ancient cultures, Chinese society is also replete with a variety of myths and superstitions. Even though a majority of young Chinese people do not put much faith in these ancient beliefs, they are still prevalent in most households. For people, intending to use Chinese dating websites, a basic knowledge of these superstitions can go a long way in preventing any misunderstandings or conflicts with their Chinese dating partners. There are some specific superstitions associated with New Year, which most Chinese people adhere to quite religiously.

Most Chinese people abstain from eating meat on the first day of the New Year, as they believe that this will ensure a happy and long life. It is also customary to put away all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans, and other equipments used for cleaning on New Year’s eve as using them on New Year’s Day is believed to wipe out good luck from the home. Until the fifth day, the entire dust and rubbish is swept into the middle of the house and then placed into the corners where it must not be tramped over. If people ask their Chinese dating partners why the dust and rubbish is not swept over the threshold, they are informed about it being considered akin to sweeping away a family member.

It is also considered important for people to avoid lending anything on New Year Day and also to pay all debts by this time, as well as abstain from using negative terms, foul language and bad words. Every mention of death and misery is completely prohibited and most people using Chinese dating sites often feel surprised about their dating partners not using the number “four”. This is because in Chinese the sound of number “four” is same as the sound of death and hence is to be avoided at all costs.
