On Chinese Doors

A couple points on Chinese doors. In ancient times doors had tall door sills, which you must step over to get through the door. This is to keep the ghosts out. Evidently, they can’t manage those couple inches. Also women should enter with their right foot first and men their left.

As Chinese New Year is approaching remember you shouldn’t sweep dust, etc. out of a door. Also, you should leave your doors and window’s open on the eve of Chinese New Year to let good luck in and bad luck out. It’s likely to be to cold and snowy to do that here.

    Funny you say that about sweeping..In the Philippines all year round they say that it is bad luck to Sweep the floor at night because it will drive away incoming blessings.
