【2020第一天,创造温暖新仪式】


准备好要跟2019说拜拜,迎接2020了嗎?!



庆祝跨年,除了少不了吃的喝的玩的,各国习俗又大不相同。马来西亚的我们喜欢看跨年演唱会,看烟花,或到热闹的广场、街道上跟大家一起倒数。

西班牙人會準備12顆葡萄,在午夜12点整,跟着报时钟声,一秒吃一顆,祝福新一年里12个月都平安顺遂。

日本人吃年糕,看“红白歌会”,到寺庙烧香祈福。



丹麦人拜年更激烈一些,他们会到亲友邻居家门口摔盘子!门前越多碎碗盘,新一年会越好运!

这些跨年习俗让人有仪式感,看见时光的流逝,更加珍惜身边人事物。
今年的跨年夜,你准备要怎么过,跟谁一起过呢?

不管是热闹还是安静地过,钟声响起,都不要忘记给自己和身边人送祝福!
在2020第一天,或许可以创造一些属于自己的新习惯新仪式,比如在这时候启用新茶具,泡上一杯热乎乎的好茶。在温暖窝心的时刻,举杯敬过去的一年,也祈祝新一年平安美好。



以茶辞旧贺新,不追求大杯大口快速喝完!
仔细品味每杯茶中饱满的层次,将此刻的心情延长、铭记。

品茶如生活,深入感受每个瞬间,心里记住的或平静、或快乐的时刻,一定会越来越多。

期待在2020创造更多幸福时光!

【Smooth transition into a new decade with tea】

We've finally arrived at the last day of 2019! How are you celebrating the start of 2020?

In Malaysia we love to go to countdown concerts and watch fireworks shows.

 

In Spain, the tradition is to eat 12 grapes when the clock strikes at midnight. It is said to bring you good luck for all 12 months of the year ahead!

 

People in Japan usually have family dinners on the 31st, watch the "Red and White Song Battle" on TV, and visit a shrine on the first day of New Year. 

 

Danish New Year tradition, on the other hand, can seem quite weird and "aggressive" from an outsider's perspective: they smash plates on the doorsteps of favourite friends, families and neighbours to wish them good luck!

 

Though we celebrate in ways so distinct, these traditions and practices all have a similar intention that is to anticipate a good year ahead, and to connect with the people you love and show them appreciation.

Why not create a personal tradition of your own and invite your loved ones to join? For instance, you can use a new set of teaware to brew the first cup of tea of 2020! Tea is all about enjoying a moment and sharing it with others, which makes it a perfect way to start a year!

 

Take a slow, mindful sip of the warm cuppa, and drink in the precious moment.

Refreshed and content, we are now ready for a new decade of happiness and challenges!
