24th January 2020
In celebration of Chinese New Year on Saturday 25th January we had a Chinese themed lunch on Thursday 23rd January.
The New Year brings a a host of superstitions that will apparently dictate how the next 12 months will play out for each of us.
Washing clothes, using scissors and sweeping floors are some of the easier omens to sidestep. However, parents might find it difficult to dodge crying children and women might find it difficult to avoid leaving the house all day!
According to Chinese superstition, doing any of these on January 25th will lead to bad luck for the entire coming year. But it isn’t all doom and gloom: 2020 is the Year of the Rat, an animal that symbolises wealth and the beginning of a new day.
Congratulations to those born this year and in 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960 and thank you to the catering team for a delicious lunch.
