Chinese New Year this year falls on February 8, a Monday. It will be the Year of the Fire Monkey. The eve is the 29th day of the 12th lunar month, if you are interested.
I read that the auspicious colour to wear is yellowish brown. But then again, red is the default colour for Chinese New Year, right down to inner wear.
Want to start the year right? Below is a chart showing the best days or auspicious days to commence work in the new year. So you can start planning your leave now.
According to the guide, the best days will be the 5th day (12 Feb) and the 11th day (18 Feb) of the new year but if you are a Horse or a Rat person, pick another day. Also, take note of the auspicious time.
