3. Do not use scissors or knives
They represent hatred, danger, and people who will be cut off from the lives of those who use these elements. Chinese tradition recommends that you do not cook that day, and if you have to do it, it is better day before and consume that food in the New Year.
4. Do not break the dishes
It is a pity that a plate, cup, or any utensil will break into pieces. This leads to a shortage of money throughout the year. If this happens, you need to collect all but all parts and keep them together in the container.
