Traditions or anything they HAVE to do on special days?
Like for New Years, my mum always does the following before New Years hits:

  • Coins in front of the front and back door
  • Cleans the house
  • Cleans the fridge and fills with food
  • Fresh Fruits on the table
  • Turns on all the lights in the house when it's midnight
  • Make a lot of noise
  • Shakes coins in her hands
  • Make sure no one is sleeping

I only know some of the reasons why she does them.
SHOW SPOILER She thinks:
1. By putting coins for the coming up year, we'll always have money to save and get.
2. The house will be clean for the majority of the year.
3. The fridge is full and we'll have a good selection to eat.
4. Same as above
5. Ensures we have light/ power throughout the year and not get cutoff
6. idk
7. Idk but I suspect it's the same reason as #1
8. idk.

We don't have any for New Years, but Christmas Eve we have a set meal we have to have every year, then we have a small party with our family and some fireworks. Then we give my nan her first present when it turns midnight which is always always a tea cup set.

My mom cooks excessive amounts of food.
Every New Year's Eve she says she won't be cooking much, but she does.

However, my dad has been doing this dance to Queen's I Want to Break Free.
He puts on a Christmas hat, takes the mop and dances to it.
Every single New Year's Eve for the past few years.
It's his time to shine.

Yeah, he does it just to make us laugh, but still.

Massive food orgies for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Kids could open one present Christmas eve ( and it was NEVER the big one) lol
Other than that ... not really...
No religious traditions, Nothing for luck or any of that weird shit.
Sometimes my mom would make black eyed peas and ham for New Years. I hated that shit. Smelled AWFUL.

Nothing at all..
There used to be one "tradition" where my brothers would have a bbq party with their friends at home but now they're overseas.
It's boring.
And quiet.

Right now my neighbours are playing with fireworks. They're screaming too.
noise pollution...

The coronation for new Emperors in the Huaxia Dynasty occur at least 49 days after the death of the previous Emperor. That is because the mourning period, when white must be worn (black trims are pieces are allowed too), lasts 49 days. On the day of the coronation, the new Emperor wears yellow Dragon Robes and the most formal of clothing is worn by all Ministers of the Cabinet and members of the imperial family. The day of the coronation is a national holiday. The Emperor is carried by legions of eunuchs in a portable throne and is surrounded by Ministers of the Cabinet as he is paraded along the Eternal Forbidden Palace City. At long last, he will be carried to the Hall of Supreme Harmony, where he will sit on the Dragon Throne. He will be greeted with ten thousand years in a huge ceremony involving all imperial family members, representative members of every noble family in the Empire, foreign monarchs, ambassadors and representatives, and all high-ranking members of the bureacracy. If an Empress is made at the same time, she will be sat at one side. If Empress Dowagers are made at the same time, they will sit on the other side of the Dragon throne. Empress and Empress Dowagers will don their formal Phoenix robes. All Ministers and the bureacracy, the nobility and all subjects present will swear alleigance to the Emperor as his people, while foreign ambassadors and representatives pay tributes of gold and treasure to the Son of Heaven and swear that they recognize the Emperor of Huaxia as the Son of Heaven and the jun of an Empire.

If an Empress is made at the same time, it is obligatory that the Emperor makes love to her at the same night, surrounded and assisted by the Empress' new servants.
