The Year of the White Rat is coming! And a new year is always a chance to wipe the slate clean and create a new beginning.
Would you like to have luck in your financial matters? There are a number of simple rituals you can try to placate the Rat!
Put some banknotes in your jacket or coat pocket. The newer and the higher value, the richer the new year will be. Keep the money in the pocket until the new year.
Put some loose change in your pants pocket and jingle it when the clock starts striking midnight to usher in the new year.
3. Holiday dinner.
The more luxurious and opulent your holiday dinner, the wealthier your family will be in the new year.
4. Glass of wine.
The year’s last glass of wine is bound to be lucky.
Make sure to collect all debts before the new year. If there are none, you can lend some money to a friend just to receive it back on the last day.
6. Red bag.
Fill a red bag with copper coins and put on the bottom of the fridge. The coins should be tails up.
7. New dress.
Put on new clothes for the new year. The more new items of clothing you’re wearing, the more luck you will attract in the new year. Don’t be stingy when buying new clothes!
8. Debts again.
If you have any debts you must repay them before the new year, or you’ll be in debt all through 2020. This doesn’t apply to banks, although it would be ideal to avoid any overdrafts.
Put a coin into the glass of champagne you’re toasting the new year with. You can then carry it around as a charm.
Have a top-to-bottom cleaning in your home. Get rid of old broken dishes and any things that bring you down.
Have friends come over. Hospitality attracts luck!
12. For the last week of the year…
…do not use new combs, wear new belts, sew on buttons, have your clothes or shoes repaired, or buy any small things (except food).
Clean up yours. Put all the banknotes in order and make sure you have at least one large-denomination note in there.
14. Last-day rituals.
Leave a glass of wine out for New Year’s Eve. Decorate your door with a holiday wreath. Let go of grudges and apologize to those you’ve hurt.
15. New Year’s Eve.
Put a white tablecloth on the table, put a coin in every corner, light seven green candles and let them burn all the way down.
