The Celebration of Chinese New Year 2015 in Singapore
One way of bringing in the new year is by wearing new clothes. Another is by cleaning the family home, which is thought to be a symbol of “sweeping out” all bad energy, while making room for good energy to come in. Another practice is known as “new year visits,” which is a gathering of family and friends. The younger family members love this time as the visiting family and friends bring them little red packets or “hongbao” that are filled with money. The Reunion Dinner held on Chinese New Year’s Eve is always a highlight for everyone, when friends and family gather together to eat.

There will be many kinds of events surrounding Chinese New Year 2014 in Singapore one of main one being the Chingay Parade. The Chingay Parade is somewhat like a huge carnival, where you will enjoy magicians, dancers, amazing floats and fire eaters. Technically, it is a parade, but it will be held on the giant grounds of the Formula One Pit Building, alongside the waterfront Marina. The River Hongbao is another very popular Chinese New Year event, that is held sometime during the mid part of February closer to the closing of the Chinese New Year. The River Hongbao will become alive with shopping, street performers, games, lanterns and naturally, the incredible fireworks, which is always the crowd favorite.
