Celebrate Lunar New Year With Best Buy
Celebrations are an integral part of our lives. They are events to look forward to and to plan for. The Lunar New Year is approaching quickly on February 8th, 2016. That is the day of the year’s first new moon.
What Is the Lunar New Year?
According to Chinese legend it started with a mythical beast called the Nian. Nian would arrive on the first day of the New Year and eat livestock, crops and even villagers, especially children. Pretty grim tale, huh? To protect themselves the villagers would place food in front of their doors. Then hopefully Nian would eat the food, be satisfied and go away.
One day a god whispered to one of the villagers and told him to place red paper and firecrackers on his doorstep. And it worked. The Nian was scared by the noise of the firecrackers and he hates the color red. So Nian was frightened away forever. The villagers all cheered and celebrated with a huge feast. What a happy ending! And now we know why we have fireworks on New Year’s.
