2. Abstain from swearing, swearing

Swearing, swearing is not suitable with fine customs. That’s what people should abstain from during these two days to avoid getting caught up in unnecessary marketing.

5. Abstain from breaking

Avoid breaking utensils

Grandparents believe that at the beginning of the month, breaking household items such as dishes, kettles, and mirrors is not good. Broken and broken words are words that create separation and separation in the family. Therefore, on the first day of the month, do not break dishes, kettles, quarrel, and abstain from unhappy things happening to the family.

6. Abstain from lending and borrowing money

Especially for business people, abstaining from borrowing and lending is very noticeable on these two days. Even limiting the return and exchange of goods on the first or third day of the month is a way to prevent the whole month from having financial and business difficulties. Therefore, taboo on the 1st, even if it is to export, pay, lend or borrow money, still abstain from picking up change.

In addition, on the 1st of every month, do not pick up change on the street. It can be your money for ghost offerings or your “lucky trading” money. Therefore, on the 1st day of the month, in addition to making money, lending and borrowing money, we also abstain from picking up change.

Above are a few folk beliefs that are still used in many places in Vietnam to this day. I read for reference only to get the best choice for these two special days.

Above all, it’s still how you live your life. If you are positive, you will see luck, happiness and vice versa wherever you look. New month full of energy!
