What should you do before discontinuing the work?
Clearing the desk
The Lunar New Year represents the start of a new year. During this period, every household will carry out spring cleaning. You can do so for your work desk too. Try to discard unnecessary items and wipe your desk clean. Tidy up your workspace for a fresh start.
Place an ang pao (red packet) in the drawer
Prior to the discontinuation of work, you can place an ang pao in your drawer. You can choose to put any amount in the ang pao or take reference from the lucky number of your zodiac sign. Placing an ang pao in the drawer is a symbol of good luck, and you can keep it there for a year so that you can enjoy smooth progress in everything that you do.
Clear all outstanding debts
On this day, you must clear all outstanding debts, be it lunch money that your colleague(s) helped you to pay previously or parking fees. Ideally, you should return money to all those whom you owed. Also, you should ensure that others do not owe you money. That way, you can look forward to rolling riches this year.

Most auspicious dates to start work after Lunar New Year holiday
It’s a fairly common practice for some small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with pantang (i.e. superstitious) bosses to only start business or work after the Chinese New Year on an auspicious day (also known as kai gong). Even the day they stop work and take a break for the Chinese New Year matters as well (also known as shou gong).
The best dates to start work again after the Lunar New Year celebrations would be:
24th (clashing zodiac: Rat) at 11am
27th (clashing zodiac: Rabbit) at 11am
29th (clashing zodiac: Goat) at 9am
There’s also a warning from another fengshui site: Monday, the 23rd of January 2023, and Sunday, the 5th of February 2023, are blackout dates when it comes to work. This means that you’re advised to avoid all work activities on those dates (yes, this includes checking work emails, apparently)!
