One of the most widely celebrated festivals in the world - Chinese New Year, or Lunar New Year is a 15-day celebration in China and the global Chinese community - also known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival that is celebrated in Vietnam and South Korea, Chinese New Year is a celebration and ushering in of the season of fresh blooms and a new beginning to the year with Spring.
Dating back to over 3,000 years - Chinese New Year is a ceremonial day for families and loved ones to gather together, and pray to their ancestors and the gods for protection and a flourishing season and year ahead for themselves, their families and even their financial endeavours.
To truly usher in the coming year on a positive note - houses are cleaned and decorated lavishly in auspicious colours and lucky feng shui emblems, families and friends gather together for a reunion dinner every year with decadent foods, sweets, red envelopes and presents for one another; and finally, the celebrations are kicked off with a magnificent display of fireworks. Each element of the celebration represents something important and highly symbolic to the Chinese culture and mythology.
Undeniably though, one of the most looked forward to parts of the celebration includes the reunion dinner with loved ones. Yet, this year - as the global pandemic has taken over our lives almost completely, and as we learn to adjust to the new norms in almost every realm of our lives - it is undeniable, that celebrations are no longer the same, either. With the need for social distancing, and the curb of gatherings - how could we possibly relish celebrations, as we did before?
