New Year Traditions


    Far Eastern New Year

    In the Far East New Year is celebrated by people by first washing their statues of Buddha with scented water.

    People throw water over each other at New Year Festivals. They do this in the hope that this will bring them a good rainy season. The reason being so that they have good crops.

    One New Year custom celebrated in the Far East is to let pet animals go free. Sometimes people buy a turtle for New Year. They decorate the shell with gold paper. Then they let it go. They are kind to animals as they believe it will bring them good luck in the year to come.
