As the festival is focused on bringing luck and fighting off evil, showering and throwing away garbage isn't allowed for the first 5 days as  you  might be getting rid of your luck!

There are 7 lucky foods to eat during the Chinese New Year: fish (for prosperity), dumplings and spring rolls (for wealth), Sweet rice balls ( also known as "Tangyuan"  for family), Good Fortune Fruit (for fulness and wealth), Glutinous Rice Cakes (also known as "Niangao" for higher income or promotion), Noodles (for happiness and longevity)
