February 14, 2010: Valentine’s Day & Chinese New Year :: Double Luck In Love

February 14, 2010
February 14, 2010

This year, the Year Of The Tiger, is only the third time since 1900 that Chinese New Year has fallen on the same day (February 14) as Valentine’s Day. This means the entire year is going to be filled with passion and capable of great love, and that you can take advantage of both holidays falling on the same day to attract new people, express love to family and friends or even deepen love with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Even if you’re not Chinese, the day can be full of celebration, fun, love and fresh starts!


Love & Luck

Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day are filled with the same intentions. They’re both a time for forgiveness, sharing love and good fortune. You can set the momentum for more love and better relationships all year long with the color red, which is associated with both Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.


Ways To Celebrate

You can prepare for new love and fortune with Chinese New Year traditions:

  • Clean your house with the intentions of sweeping away any misfortune, which also makes room for good luck.
  • Make breakfast in bed for your special love or plan a romantic meal. Remember to include chocolate-covered strawberries and two red roses, one rose for each of you, nestled together in a single vase.
  • Invite your family for a special meal featuring red tableware, flowers and treats like red-velvet cake. Make heart-shaped cookies decorated with red icing and red sprinkles.
  • If you’re looking for love, find a (fake) pair of tigers and put one on each nightstand in your bedroom on this marriage of Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. The pair of tigers will act as guardians, protecting your loving relationship all year long.
  • Express your love for each other by wearing his and hers red T-shirts.
  • Place the red, Chinese double happiness symbol under your pillow.
  • Surprise your love with a special poem written with red ink.
