1 SWEEP OR SLEEP
As tradition dictates, it is best to clean the house well before the new year begins (on February 12) in order to sweep out the old and usher in the new. The “big sweep” day typically takes place two days before the festival in order to make sure a home is sparkling and ready to receive guests. (Cleaning on the first few days after the new year risks sweeping all the incoming good luck out the door.) Considering friends and relatives may not be too keen to visit this year, why not book a staycation package that comes with dining deals and banquets from hotels like the Rosewood or the Peninsula, where the sweeping is done for you instead?
