Did You Remember to Set-off the Firecrackers?

I’ve read that construction projects in China start and end with a bang. Tradition requires that the evil spirits be frightened from the site by setting off a bunch of firecrackers at the start of a construction project, then again when the building is ready to be occupied.

I like that tradition and may suggest it to some of my clients…probably not the big church project I’m currently working on.

Do you have any traditions or superstitions that you start or end projects with? Post a comment if you do.
