Preparing for Prosperity: February 2nd to 8th

The Lunar New Year preparations start from the 23rd to the 29th of the lunar month, marking a period from February 2nd to 8th. This is a time to cleanse our homes, sweeping away any remnants of misfortune, and making space for the new luck that the coming year brings. It's an age-old tradition that signifies the removal of the old and the welcoming of the new.

Embracing New Beginnings with Vibrant Decorations and Delicacies

With our living spaces refreshed and revitalized, we venture out to gather New Year essentials. The hunt for the finest decorations and delicacies is more than just a shopping trip—it's a ritual that prepares us for the festivities ahead, ensuring our celebrations are filled with joy and splendor.

A Night of Togetherness: New Year’s Eve, February 9th

As New Year's Eve arrives, homes are adorned with vibrant decorations, setting the stage for the night's highlight—the reunion dinner. This meal is more than just a feast; it's a symbol of family unity and gratitude. It's a time when families come together, sharing stories and hopes for the year ahead.

Welcoming the First Day of the Lunar New Year: February 10th

The excitement peaks on the first day of the Lunar New Year, greeted by the exhilarating performances of lion and dragon dances. These dances are a spectacle of culture and strength, signaling the start of a year filled with vitality and courage.

Sharing Joy and Prosperity

Dressed in new attire, we visit relatives and friends, exchanging greetings of prosperity and well-being for the year of the dragon. The tradition of giving red envelopes and sharing festive foods is a gesture of blessing and goodwill, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

A Feast of Fortune: Savoring Traditional Delicacies

The celebration continues with the enjoyment of traditional foods, each symbolizing fortune, wealth, and success. From red seeds and nian gao to savory rice cakes, these delicacies are not just a treat for the palate but also a homage to our heritage and customs.
