The first opportunity for starting your Rat Year off right is to enjoy some Lucky Chinese New Year Foods.
Every food is easy to find at your local supermarket and/or get delivered.
Do the Foods actually work for Luck?
I can't guarantee such claims, but I can say that I started 2019 off with every food mentioned below. By June I was in Hawaii beginning my digital nomad island hopping venture overseas! I just happen to be on Jeju Island with all of its Jeju tangerines for 2020's Chinese New Year. I did not plan that. lol It works though!
Test the Foods out for Yourself in 2020!
* Mandarin Oranges - Mandarin Oranges and/or Tangerines bring wealth due to their golden color. Display real or faux oranges during your meal. Place the real ones in the fridge afterward to keep them fresh. Enjoy the great doses of Vitamin C.
* Whole Fish - Fish brings fortune, especially when you leave a little leftover for the next day. This is the equivalent of having some money saved/invested for disposable income.
* Dumplings - Dumplings bring wealth, especially when they are boat shaped.
* Long Noodles - Long noodles bring health and longevity. Get your slurp on without trying to cut them. :)
