Last Saturday, I brought April and May to the Buddhist chanting class. After the normal chanting session, the teacher shared with the kids a few things about CNY. I find them very beneficial and I would like to share with you folks.
1. The teacher advised the children to involve in spring cleaning. If the kid is too small to help up in spring cleaning, at least he or she has to be told about the meaning of spring cleaning.
2. The teacher showed the children the proper of way of getting Angpow from the elders. Juniors have to bow and wish the elders, and use both hand to receive the Angpow.
4. The teacher reminded the children to take plenty of fluid and get enough sleep, if they take a lot of fried and heaty food during CNY.
Since we had done the spring cleaning, I only asked the girls to housekeep their own lockers and drawers. I wish that my girls will remember to bow, wish and use two hands to receive the angpow.
Lastly, I wish you folks a prosperous Rabbit New Year, may you enjoy the health, wealth and happiness thorughout this year and also after this.
(DiZiGui explaination: Your bows should be deep, with hands held in front and arms rounded, Always pay your respect with reverence.)
