How Would Jesus Celebrate CNY?

Have you thought of that? How would Jesus celebrate Chinese New Year?

The first thing he might do is casting out demons from lion and dragon dancers.

He would clean his house on Chinese New Year eve because sweeping the floor during CNY might sweep away grace and blessings from the house.

Probably Jesus will be busy turning water into wine for numerous house visitations.

A lot of fruitless mandarin trees will be condemned when Jesus and the twelve find no mandarin oranges on them.

His disciples will be jolly happy because it's the time they get to "cast lots" all night long, instead of only over important matters like choosing a replacement for Judas.

He will play firecrackers and encourage his disciples to do the same because that's what children do during CNY.

He might start the Sermon of the Mount with "Kong Hey Fatt Choy", before proceed with something like, "Blessed are those who are poor in spirit, for theirs is the prosperity and longevity of the kingdom..."

Jesus will not be eating any roasted pig or "bak kwa" though his disciples might.

Oh ya, Jesus will not give Ang Pao (red packets)!

Anything else u can think of?

P/S: Guess how would St. Paul celebrate CNY? (Hint: 1 Cor 9.20-22)
