Since everybody is in a festival mood under a joyful and hilarious atmosphere, people shouldn’t argue each other. Also parents shouldn’t scold or punish the children. Otherwise, you will have more argument in the new year.

Women shouldn’t use knife or shear in the kitchen, which indicates evil, anger, danger and cutting out the luck. As a result, women don’t cook new dishes on this day, people eat meals from leftovers.
