How to Avoid Good Luck in One's Ben Ming Nian?
The most popular way to avoid miserable events is to wear red underwear, red waist belt and red socks, which are believed able to suppress the evil spirits. In case of being set up by bad guys, people can also get a pair of red shoe-pads, which may trample everything dishonorable.
