Sights and Sounds
Most Chinese New Year celebrations include plenty of lights, from strings of paper lanterns to twinkle lights, candles, and fireworks. There are plenty of sounds to enjoy as well – traditional and modern music, the ringing of bells, and the voices of loved ones. Be sure to watch a parade or enjoy a traditional lion dance as you celebrate! the River Hongbao starts today! Check it out here – http://www.riverhongbao.sg/
Children and young people have an extra reason to look forward to the lunar new year. They can expect to receive red envelopes filled with money, gifted to give them luck throughout the new year. Even parents who can’t include hefty amounts of cash can stuff the envelopes with good wishes and loving sentiments. And modern technology offers a brand-new way for kids to get their New Year cash, thanks to “red envelope” apps available for smartphones. Relatives can gift cash through these apps instead of using paper money.
Babies born in the Year of the Dog are likely to share some personality traits with their Chinese astrological animal! Parents of these kids can expect them to grow into serious, responsible workers who communicate well.
Of course, as with any major holiday, there will be food! But you don’t have to slave in the kitchen yourself; instead, call a favourite Singapore catering service to handle everything from the daily lunches and snacks to the big New Year’s Eve feast.
