Chinese New Year - the Sixth day

Today is the Sixth day of Chinese New Year.

From the sixth to the tenth day, people continue to make visits to their relatives and friends. Many people also visit temples to pray for good fortune and health for the family. Friends gather for 'lou sang' - a Chinese dinner that starts with tossing the fish salad for health, wealth or whatever one wishes for in the new year.

The sixth day of the Chinese New Year is also known as “Ma Ri” (the day of the horse) as this day is believed to be the birthday of the horse.
