On this day, festivities are put on hold. The Chinese stay home to regain inner harmony, withdraw from others to avoid conflict, pray at temples, and go to bed early.
Water and words are easy to pour but impossible to recover.
This day is an opportunity to discuss taking the time to think about what we say and the impact of our words, especially if speaking when we're angry.
If we take the time to do so, we can come up with gentler ways of saying something. If we take deep breaths to calm down when we're angry, it allows for the possibility of being kind with our words.
