As you no-doubt all know, during the month that follows the Chinese new year, having your hair cut may make some touchy god angry
; and if you have any uncle on your mother's side, he might become ill or die
(if your mother has no brother, it's safe for you to cut your hair as much as you like though. Which is a good job for Chinese hairdressers, otherwise they would be pretty much totally out of business for one month of the year). The same goes with buying shoes.
The good news is, today the dragon raised its head again
, which means you can at last have your hair cut again (and buy yourself a pair of shoes).
So in case you were waiting (I'm sure you all were
), well, now's the time.
Ah, Chinese customs...
