“Sweeping The Dust” for Lunar New Year | Cultural Cleaning Beliefs

Did you know Spring Cleaning and Asian New Year Traditions share in their significance?

The Asian community start preparing as early as Day 12 of the lunar calendar (8th February 2018).  They carry out a spring clean of their home where it is also known as ‘sweeping the dust‘ or ‘sweeping away bad luck‘.  Based on cultural significance, it represents putting away old things, bidding farewell to the year, and welcoming the New Year. In short, a thorough home clean is required to remove all dirt, dust and cobwebs.

More importantly, sweeping or dusting should not be done on Lunar New Year because they believe that good fortune created from mess of fire crackers, red papers and gold will be swept away.
