what-colors-to-choose-for-new-years-eve-2022-the-right-outfit-for-the-year-of-the-tiger

It is said that the mood on New Year's Eve will affect the next 12 months of the Year of the Tiger - 2022.


Everything matters - both the shades of the celebrants' outfits and the colors inside. To make the right choice, it's worth learning more about next year's symbol.


Black water tiger (blue): its characteristics

The host of the year 2022 - Black water tiger (blue).


  • The water element of the year brings in the New Year's range shades of black, blue and blue. Despite the apparent cold and darkness, these colors have an extraordinary power. In addition, with the right skill, they can be beaten in a truly festive way.
  • The tiger is determined, emotional and impulsive. It is very important to please him, because he will give luck in all his efforts only to those who like him.
  • The water element somewhat balances the initially bright character of the Tiger. However, the "bright" details do not disappear completely, but only emphasize the first two color options.



Clothing colors and accessories for the 2022 New Year


In what color should we celebrate the New Year 2022? To choose the right shades of outfit and jewelry, you need to know the color of the New Year 2022.


Several colors will be characteristic of the year:


  • black;
  • shades of blue and navy blue;
  • to a lesser extent, but also important are the classic "tiger" colors, such as natural shades of yellow and orange.


On this basis, you can choose the color palette of the outfit.


A win-win for women would be a classic black dress. Do not think that it is certainly not suitable for a holiday, because it is not bright enough and does not evoke associations with fun. Its beauty lies in the countless possibilities to play with it in different ways and to create almost any image. So, to celebrate the New Year, a black dress can be combined with makeup and shiny jewelry. The tiger has a brilliant personality, so he will appreciate the highlighted features and elegant jewelry that emphasize the beauty of their owner.


Speaking of makeup, its shades can be almost any. The most important thing is to highlight and emphasize your attractiveness, creating a unique image. Therefore, eye makeup, done in black tones, will draw attention to the appearance and eliminate the need to overemphasize the lips. Blue and blue eyeshadows can look expensive and spectacular if used correctly and will also be relevant to your holiday.


An image in blue and light blue can be truly New Year's Eve. The element of the next 12 months is water, so these shades will be as appropriate and relevant as possible. So that the whole image doesn't look too "cold", you can shade it with typical Tiger colors - the correctly selected details of the image in a yellow-orange scale will fit perfectly here.


A good solution would be a multi-part suit, each with the "right" shade. So, a blue blouse or a tunic, dark blue pants or a skirt, accessories in golden tones - all this will look elegant and will please the owner next year.



You can choose a variety of acceptable and desirable accessory colors. So, jewelry can be made of gold (the classic metal of the Tiger), and silver (the metal of the water element, close to the colors of next year and perfectly combined with them). Precious and semi-precious stones in jewelry can be blue, light blue, transparent, as well as yellow-orange, such as amber or some types of pearls.


Elegant and austere black accessories will also come in handy. On blonde hair, a black band will look great, supporting the hairstyle, and an elegant black bag will emphasize the good taste of its owner and will match almost any outfit.


Interior colors for the 2022 New Year


It's not just the outfit that matters. The whole interior of the room where the holiday will take place can also be done in appropriate colors, to receive sympathy from the owner of the year and to create a suitable mood.


Black, one of the key colors of the coming year, does not look festive enough at first glance. It's all about combining it. The black background, decorated with gold and silver prints, looks elegant and solemn. This color scheme is suitable for some decor elements.



The colors blue must be reflected inside as well. You can decorate a Christmas tree in similar colors - they go well with the dark green color of the needles. So that the tree does not look too severe and cold, you can add decorations in gold and silver tones, which are also suitable for the holiday and are beautiful for the symbol of the year.



The classic colors characteristic of the Tiger play in the hands of all those who want to keep the correct scale. After all, the warm tones of yellow, orange, and their variants not only combine perfectly with black, light blue, and blue, but are also able to "dilute" them, relieving the interior of excessive coldness, making them l more comfortable and brighter.



The tiger, by nature, loves holidays and celebrations. The whole interior should be decorated and abundant and careful, but at the same time the rules of good taste should be taken into account and not exaggerate with the decor. Jewelry should shine and shine, reflect light and impress everyone who admires them when they enter the house.


In addition to the temporary decorations, you can think about the selection of long-term interior elements and their colors. It makes sense to look at key colors throughout the year. That's why you can pick up textiles made in them - for example, hang new curtains or buy a cape for a sofa made in these shades.


To please the Tiger means to bring the right energy into the house and to be lucky in all your efforts for the coming year, making it more pleasant, easier and more productive. Therefore, it is so important to respect her preferences when celebrating the holiday.

Reduce or increase the length of the brake, as appropriate; but release him again on the first day of January, with his face straightened forward, ignoring the things that have been and are past. - Henry Ward Beecher
  • The one who violates a decision is a weak person; the one who does it - a fool. F. M. Knowles

is-2022-a-leap-year-what-is-a-leap-year-history-calculations-and-superstitions

For centuries, mankind has created a history that has been passed down from generation to generation. The myths or the reality about the leap years that have survived so far make everyone think about this inexplicable fact.

 

What is a leap year?

 

 

The term "jump" in Latin has a numerical meaning - 2/6. It is scientifically the fourth year above the standard number of days (366).

 

The historical period of a leap year

 

 

During the reign of Y. Caesar, there was an additional day repeated in the Roman calendar, with a number (February 24).

 

The Romans counted the days, the years, according to the Julian calendar.

 

In the Julian calendar, every fourth year was considered a leap year, and the last two days of February were below the same number.

 

After the death of the Roman ruler, the priests deliberately began to appoint the third year - a leap year. There was a change in the annual time and people, for this reason, lived up to twelve leap years.

 

Due to the decree of the new emperor of Rome - Augustus Octavian, everything fell into place. It took sixteen years to get the "jump time" right.

 

Sixteen centuries later, the Orthodox Church introduced new changes to the calendar.

 

The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Gregory XIII, proposed to calculate the calendar according to the new rules. He proposed introducing an additional day in February with a different date (February 29). At the general assembly, before the coming Easter, the idea of ​​the head of the Catholic Church was successfully accepted. The Roman calendar had a new chronology. In honor of the leader of the Catholic Church, she began to be called a "Gregorian."

 

The modern concept of a leap year

 

It is known that a year consists of 365 days. The next fourth year is considered a leap year. It's a longer day.

 

In a leap year, February is not twenty-eight days, but twenty-nine, but this phenomenon happens every four years.

 

Assumptions and superstitions for the leap year

 

 

Our Slavic ancestors believed that the leap year was a mystical, superstitious year. Probably the reason lies in the distant history of Saint Kasyan.

 

Saint Kasian served in the Galilean monastery and was its founder. He became famous for his writing career after writing twenty-four essays on "Interview," based on a moral, Christian attitude toward the faith.

 

The main flaw in Saint Kasyan's life was that his date of birth fell on the last day of February and even at the end of the year.

 

According to the Slavic faith, the last day of the year was considered the end of a severe winter. For this reason, the holy monk gained a bad reputation.

 

The superstitious Slavs considered the last day of a leap year to be the most difficult. They believed in evil spirits. Hence the fear of people before a leap year.

 

The signs of a leap year have been associated with Saint Kasyan:

 

  • If Kasyan approached people, the disease would attack them.
  • Kasyan was next to the animals - their deaths were inevitable.
  • Where Kasyan's gaze falls, there will be trouble and devastation.
  • The unsuccessful year is approaching Kasyanov - unsuccessful.

 

According to legend, in a leap year, there are many things you should not do, for example:

 

  • Play weddings
  • Plan a pregnancy, have children
  • Create new projects
  • Go into the woods for mushrooms
  • Haircut
  • Divorce file
  • Borrow money
  • Plant new seeds
  • Make interior renovations
  • Buying real estate

 

The approach of a leap year in modern society is controversial. One part of society believes in its negative actions, the other does not.

 

Negative side of a leap year:

 

  • Natural disasters
  • Military conflicts
  • Frequent accident

 

 

The positive side of a leap year

 

People born in a leap year are creative and talented people. Endowed with a brilliant charisma, strong character, love of life (Julius Caesar, Leonardo da Vinci, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Gauguin).

 

Today, a leap year is perceived as a year of disasters, wars, catastrophes. After all, the worst events took place during this period.

 

People are prone to believe something and most often evil. A leap year is perceived as a time of loss, disappointment, sadness. Is that right? Just ask yourself.

 

Leap year: where did the extra day come from?

 

 

Do you think that the Earth will make a complete revolution in exactly 365 days? No, it's not like that - the Earth makes a complete circle around the Sun a little longer, that is, 365 days and 6 hours.

 

In other words, an extra quarter is added each year. For 4 years, such quarters come out 24 hours. So, it turned out that a year that is a multiple of 4 (2008, 2012, 2016, the calendar of leap years is based on this principle) is different from the rest.

 

The leap year is intended to eliminate this surplus and to bring the balance into chronology. If it weren't for the leap year, then in a few centuries the new year would have been postponed to the beginning of March, and that's pretty serious!

 

Differences from leap year

 

The differences between a leap year and other years, from a material point of view, are limited only by the number of days. In addition, people need to work harder for a day. Sometimes, however, it turns out and rests once again, but this happens quite rarely.

 

Astrologically, there are a lot of problems around the Earth around the Sun in a leap year:

 

  • everyday problems;
  • man-made disasters;
  • natural cataclysms;
  • relatively high mortality.

 

However, one can argue with the latter - there are no comments from ritual service workers about the increase in mortality. Only a few older people die.

 

Year leap: Greetings from Antiquity

 

 

For the first time, the ancient Romans were concerned about the inconsistency of the calendar with the actual course of time. In this country, it was forbidden to transfer significant data in another season. People were guided by the movement of the Sun in the sky.

 

Gaius Julius Caesar solved the problem quickly and radically - from the time of his reign, people began to live according to the Julian calendar, which just added a day in February every 4 years. They gradually started moving to the new calendar, not everyone accepted it, but time took its toll.

 

Over time, the pagan calendar migrated to Christian culture. But in some regions this year he is associated with Kasyan Visokos, one of the saints, the patron saint of monasticism.

 

He is believed to have been drinking without restraint for three years, and at the age of four he gets angry and takes revenge in public for the fact that his birthday is celebrated only once every 4 years.

 

However, there is a discrepancy here - a Christian saint, by definition, cannot be a drunk, plus there is no record in the church that Visokos would like.

 

Signs and beliefs associated with a leap year

 

 

Now the leap year is relatively simple, and earlier some people were afraid to leave home on February 29 in a leap year. For example, there was a sign that if you get a good frost on that day, and the frosts can be severe at the end of February, then a person will certainly catch a cold and die.

 

The same goes for animals. Popular belief says that any mistake in caring for pets on this day can cost animals their lives. For example, malnutrition or overeating.

 

Starting a new business in a leap year, according to popular belief, cannot be very successful.

 

Surely everything will be ruined: even if a man builds a house, he even opens a business. In addition, all major cases should be postponed until at least February 29 - this time is considered the most unfortunate since the beginning of the year.

 

To calm Visokos a little, you need to do the following:

 

  • under the bells, throw a glass of vodka from the window (another alcohol is suitable, but it must be strong);
  • drink without glasses that shake when it is exactly midnight;
  • If you still have glasses, then you should put the glasses on the table before taking a sip.

 

According to popular belief, Visokos' anger will diminish slightly before the completion of the next journey around the Sun.

 

Another interesting sign is associated with the collection of gifts from nature. Picking mushrooms and berries is usually difficult on February 29, but things found on the street, such as money, can cause problems if they enter the house.

 

And if the dog barks at the same time (a dog day on February 29 itself is a bad sign), then trouble is guaranteed. You have to ignore it while saying, "Hold me out."

 

Prohibitions of the leap year

 

 

Because this year is so unlucky, people have come with a lot of bans, noticing that you can remove the troubles from home. By the way, nature "participates" in these prohibitions as well.

 

For example, according to ancient memories, in leap years, usually a poor apple crop.

 

So what not to do in a leap year:

 

  • You can't sing carols for baptism. This ritual in itself is relatively associated with evil spirits and once every four years it is especially "attentive" to humans. You better not litter. So, no matter how many sweets people offer, it is better to avoid carols.
  • It is not recommended to sell homemade products. It is believed that happiness and wealth leave home with them.
  • You can't show the first erupted tooth to a baby to anyone, except maybe your closest relatives. If the ban is violated, the child will have crooked teeth.
  • You can't start a big business, including getting married. Everything will break down, as I mentioned above.
  • You can't buy "coffin stuff". It sounds weird, but for some people in their old age it is the norm to buy things for their own funeral. Doing so in a leap year will hasten death.
  • Women are strictly forbidden to dye their hair. This can lead to the lady becoming bald.
  • It is forbidden to change jobs or places of residence. In a new place, a person will simply not take root, you will have to start from scratch (this point is sometimes impractical because there are different circumstances in life).
  • Having children joins this forbidden group, but not everyone takes this restriction seriously.

 

Everything may sound archaic, but the fact remains - people often complain to astrologers and psychics about the misfortunes that began even after violating such prohibitions.

 

Conclusion - until the Earth makes a complete revolution around the Sun in a leap year, some activities should be abandoned.

 

The reason for the bad reputation of a leap year

 

 

We must recognize that if we did not have leap years, there would be a regular change of seasons. Therefore, they help to synchronize the Gregorian and astrological calendars and do not allow the seasons to change in other months.

 

But why a leap year is considered bad, you have to figure it out. In Slavic culture, there has long been a negative attitude towards such years. An additional day in February was considered the cause of disasters and landslides.

 

Perhaps the reason for such antipathy was that this time, on February 29, according to Slavic beliefs, Kashchey-Chernobog was subdued, commanding dark forces, sowing evil, death, disease, and madness.

 

Old Russians often associated a day of jumping with Cassian, who was born on February 29th. Based on the legends, where he was assigned the role of guardian of the gates of Hell, the traitorous cherub, the adoptive one of the demons, etc., one can understand why this character was very feared and strongly cursed. The Russians were convinced that Cassian had a negative impact throughout the year. There was a pestilence of cattle and poultry, crops were destroyed in the fields, and famine began.

 

On February 29, people once again tried not to go out into the yard, to keep cattle and birds closed.

 

It is difficult to answer unequivocally why a leap year is considered bad. Some scientists claim that natural and man-made disasters are becoming more common during this period. Many personalities are also in a hurry to cancel their individual problems for more than a year.

 

The following tragic events are historical facts:

 

  • the collapse of the Byzantine Empire and the city of Constantinople falls in the leap year 1204;
  • the bloody Spanish Inquisition began in 1232;
  • the plague of the inhabitants of medieval Europe from the plague, in which 1/3 of the population died in 1400;
  • the terrible events of the Night of St. Bartholomew in 1572;
  • the terrible tsunami in Japan in 1896 and the earthquake in China in 1556;
  • In 1908, everyone became aware of the fall of the Tunguska meteorite, etc.

Let's summarize

 

A positive attitude and self-confidence form a strong basis for important achievements in a person's life, and small superstitions should not become an obstacle to achieving goals.

 

Is it the leap year or 2022? 2022 will be an ordinary year. From year to year, the approach of the new year arouses enthusiasm among superstitious people.

 

Interest is based on the popular signs and superstitions associated with the addition to the additional February 29th. One day, February 29, is added to the calendar every four years.

 

If you believe in your own strengths you will be able to do whatever you want in any year! We at Bemorepanda advise you not to be guided by superstitions!

top-100-new-year-2022-memes-that-are-too-funny-to-ignore-this-winter

For thousands of years, people have linked their hopes for change to the night between the years, to a better future as the years go by.


Not coincidentally, this holiday is particularly rich in customs, traditions and superstitions, some funny, some downright absurd, but all come to complete the festive atmosphere and good mood.


New Year's Eve holds the record for most seniority. The Babylonians celebrated it 6,000 years ago, in the first nine months after the solstice. The festival lasted 11 days, with various activities taking place every day. Then people, as now, set goals for the new year. A common resolution among the Babylonians was the return of borrowed agricultural equipment. On this occasion the king went through a ritual of repentance and was stripped of power to spend three days in isolation and in prayer. When he returned to the world, restoration ceremonies were organized to provide him with the support of nature. Let's see now what interesting traditions we can find through the various cultures…


1.Heads will roll


2.I can’t believe is New Year 2022


3.Have a happy New Year


Traditions and customs, as well as New Year's superstitions, have been passed down by word of mouth from generation to generation. The most common of these are presented by dcnews.ro, which appreciates that if we were to respect them all, we would not have time to spend years between friends and family.


Thus, tradition says that if you do not have money in your pocket for the New Year, you will have bad luck all year round. In addition, it is not good to have debts at the end of the year, because you will have debts next year.


4.Christmas just ended


5.New Year resolutions


6.Happy New Year


7.Choose to live your best life now


It is also said that if you hold your boyfriend by the hand, he will do well in love all year round. At midnight, don't forget to kiss your boyfriend. If you hold a glass in your hand, a happy year will follow. It is not good to cry on the first day of the new year, because it will be a sad year. And don't forget the midnight wish, which is said to be fulfilled.


On the night of the year, it's good to make a lot of noise to ward off evil spirits. As for the outfit, you have to wear something red and new clothes from January 1st.


As for luck, you do it with your own hand, if you don't throw anything out of the house on the first day of the new year. It is also said that it is good for someone to come into the house on the first day of the New Year.
