My two favourite seasons of the year – has got to be Christmas and Chinese New Year.
Christmas for the gorgeous Orchard Road lights, the time with family, the presents-giving and presents-receiving, the heart-warming Christmas production the church puts up annually. But Christmas usually also means a time of hard work.
Chinese New Year, on the other hand, speaks to me of rest, rest and more rest! Haha! I skip any kind of home decoration, I usually don’t bother with jostling with the crowds at Chinatown, and I just skip ahead to …
For Christmas, we started a couple of traditions in the house – like the Christmas tree, not opening ANY presents till December 25 among others.
But Chinese New Year traditions? I am probably lagging behind on this.
I don’s suppose snacking on prawn rolls and kueh bangkits can count, yeah?
What are some of your family Chinese New Year traditions?
