New Traditions for CNY?



Daily Dose: New Traditions for CNY

10 More Days to CNY

Honestly, I am still quite unsure how this year's CNY is going to be celebrated in the family. I come from a large extended family with numbers easily exceeding 100 when both sides (mom and dad) families combine. However, with the new rulings, it is impossible to keep the tradition of everyone meeting at the same place. 

As such, traditions such as visiting the elders, big group reunion dinners, meeting cousins for blackjack may all be put under the back burner. New ways to interact, such as using Google Meet or Zoom will take over this year. As for E-AngPow, as great as it sounds, getting the numbers of 50 nieces and nephews and doing paynow to every one of them is a big chore.  Who knows, I might just skip that this year. 

What new traditions are in store for your family this CNY?

2) River Hongbao to be held at Gardens By the Bay this year.

This year will be without live performances, carnival games and fireworks. Instead, lanterns and Lion Dance exhibition will be the main highlights. Will you go?

5) Four who had severe allergic reactions from Covid19 vaccine have recovered, none need ICU support

That should provide some relief to those who are hesitant about the virus.
