Next year 2018 will be marked by the Yellow Earth Dog. If you believe the Eastern horoscope, then this is the ideal time to create a family, have children and purchase a home. How to celebrate 2018 Year of the Dog to appease its patron and receive happiness, health and well-being as a reward?
Where to celebrate the Year of the Dog 2018
A dog is a domestic animal, accustomed to a certain place and specific people. The most ideal way to meet in 2018 is a home atmosphere and a holiday with your closest and dearest friends. The more guests, the better, since perky laughter and positive emotions will not only appease the Earth Dog, but will also enter the new year with the chimes.
How to decorate a house for the New Year 2018 with your own hands
Particular attention should be paid to home decoration. Of course, you need to make sure that the figure of a dog is present on the tree - preferably yellow or orange. It is better to minimize the amount of shiny tinsel by replacing it with decorative elements made of fabric and thick paper - garlands, posters, panels and homemade decorations.
Make sure that the lighting in the apartment or house is bright and colorful. Flashing lights, iridescent lampshades, a three-dimensional light installation - all this will add a special touch to the celebration and delight the owner of the year.
What to wear on New Year's Eve?
2018 is the year of the Yellow Dog, so a yellow or gold color in a festive outfit is mandatory. It can be a gold chain or earrings, a golden scarf draped over the shoulders, or just a yellow manicure. Other shades are also welcome - green, brown, peach and orange. When wondering what to wear for the New Year 2018, remember the most important condition - no fur (even decorative). This is inappropriate on the eve of the Year of the Dog.
Natural green or chocolate-colored silk and sparkling gold-colored brocade are not only beautiful fabrics, but also another symbol of the coming year. In addition, many signs say that clothes made from natural fabrics, worn on holidays, enhance fun and make a person carefree.
How to treat guests on New Year's Eve
Dogs love meat, so there will be no problems with the main dishes: any kind of meat and poultry. An excellent option is leg of lamb, pork ribs. After all, they have a favorite treat for dogs - a bone. Most salads should also contain meat: pork, lamb and beef.
Do not be afraid to overdo it with decorating dishes, because the more elegant the table on the eve of the chiming clock, the richer it will be throughout the year of the Dog. Vegetable figurines, a mesh of sauce, decorations from mastic and fruits - all this will emphasize the solemnity of the evening and appease the owner of the coming year.
Dairy products and fish do not have to be present, but lovers of such dishes have nothing to fear - you can safely put them on the table.
What to give for 2018 Dogs
Gifts for the New Year should be original and sincere. Choose gifts for loved ones with a soul. The dog will be offended if, before entering its possession, people will choose gifts at random, without investing their souls or showing imagination.
The best gift for the new year 2018 is the one whose meaning is known only to you and the recipient. Perhaps this is an old rare disc of a musical group that your father loves so much, or a scarf that your sister noticed long ago in a store. Or maybe it will be a love story in a gift design, which mom loves to reread so much.
Friends and colleagues can be presented with souvenirs with the symbols of the year, for example, original mugs or notebooks. Children will be delighted with teddy dogs, and they, in turn, will bring good luck for the next year.
Regardless of the meeting place, company and gifts, the main thing is to sincerely rejoice at the new stage of life, letting go of the outgoing year without sadness. A dog is a creature that feels human emotions and is imbued with them, so New Year's Eve 2018 should be filled only with joy, happiness and fun surrounded by loved ones.
