New Year, New Underwear

The interview will be depicted by initials. The Interviewer is QB and the interview is VS.

QB: That is great! Are there any special traditions you and your family do?

VS: For New Years you have to wear new underwear. There’s yellow, red, green, and white but they all have to be new. Yellow is for luck, Green is for money, Red is for love, and white is for health or fertility. You can just choose one color or wear one with all types of colors.

Analysis: Again we see that the underwear is a major factor with the New Year. While the colors stand for the common universal symbolism, it is interesting to note that the underwear MUST be new. One may assume that it is to bring in the new luck and fortune along with the year.
