Good Luck Life: The Essential Guide To Chinese American Celebrations And Culture

Provides a readable introduction to the legends, customs, traditions, festivals, and celebrations of Chinese culture and heritage, complete with trivia, drawings, charts, tables, recipes, and informative sidebars.

Good Luck Life is the essential guide for understanding, planning, and observing Chinese
celebrations and traditions in a contemporary and easy way. If Good Luck Life weren’t
a book, it would be a group of cousins at a dim sum table sharing old family secrets
on how to make Chinese New Year’s cookies, what to buy a Chinese father-in-law on
his 80th birthday, and how to assure a child’s success on the first day of school.

Packed with practical information, Good Luck Life contains a
wealth of historical facts, legends, foods, old village recipes,
and quick planning tools for celebrating Chinese festivals
and life’s special milestones.

Written with wit and warmth, and beautifully designed as
an accessible cultural reference guide, Good Luck Life includes
tips on dining with confidence at a traditional Chinese table,
gift-giving Chinese-style, and "do and don’t” lists from wizened
Auntie Lao who recounts ancient Chinese beliefs and
superstitions. This is your map for celebrating a good luck life.

Useful Helpful June 20, 2008
Reviewer: Kat Olivares from QC Phils  
This book is very useful and practical.  I get a peek at the history legends symbols and the etiquette for all members of the family behind Chinese celebrations.||Also very helpful.   Has a time scheduler for tasks to do in preparing for a celebration.  Helps busy adults prepare each celebration well in advance to make sure the celeb is seamless and enjoyed by the whole family.

This is a good little reference book March 28, 2008
Reviewer: MW from San Francisco  
If you don't know too much about Chinese ways this is a good little reference book.  The only thing it's lacking is pictures.

Excellent Book February 13, 2008
Reviewer: Ray from Rowland Heights  
This book is the bible of Chinese Celebrations and Culture.  When I have a question I open this book first.  It's a great book as a reference or even to read through.
