Full Moon Custom

Tradition we all preserve

Full Moon Custom

Full moon or full month celebrations are celebrated by Chinese families whose baby reaches 1 month after birth. On the baby’s full moon month, some families host a dinner to entertain friends and relatives. Red hard-boiled eggs will be distributed too.

An odd number of eggs will be distributed if it is a boy and even number of eggs if it is a girl. Friends and relatives usually give a red packet in return. They may also give presents like baby food, articles for daily use or jewellery.

The Chinese also practise the custom of shaving off the baby’s hair on its full month. The baby’s hair is wrapped up in a red cloth and sewn to the baby’s pillow. It seems that by doing this, the baby would not be timid or easily frightened.

Nowadays, some of the traditional customs are still being practised either in whole or in part by modern parents. The practice of distributing Full Moon Gift Pack is seen as a more convenience way to announce the arrival of a newborn in the family and also to thanks the relatives and friends for their gifts.
