In Chinese, the end of a year is often called "year pass" and people in bygone days had to clear their debts at this time. The debtor could have no money at all after paying off the debt, which is where the auspicious Chinese idiom—"more than sufficient every year" — comes from.

Nowadays, in a prospering China, people do have more things than they need.

Yet they still experience pressure from work and family before and during Lunar New Year.

Some must deliver excellent annual reports to their bosses, some need to give a large sum as a gift of money to their relatives during the festival get-together, and some are pressured by their parents to get married or give birth to a child ASAP.

It sounds horrible and pathetic!

But stay away from alcohol, parties and pills that could make your situation worse.

Here are some good things from China that offer healthy relaxation.
