Chinese Lunar New Year 2018

Celebrated over a period of 15 days, beginning from the first day of the Chinese lunar calendar, Chinese New Year is the most important festival for the global Chinese community. Preceded by the all-important family reunion dinner the night before, the new year is celebrated with cakes and sweetmeats, the giving of ang pows (red packets filled with cash), and traditional lion dances and fireworks. Chap Goh Mei, or the 15th night of the celebrations, marks the end of the festival. On this night, young, unmarried women inscribe messages on oranges and throw them into lakes or ponds in the hopes of attracting a good husband.
