Since my father passed away in 2007, CNY has become a very painful period for me. Being an only child, I am grimly reminded of how I am now 'alone' with no parents with whom I can celebrate. Hence, I only prepare a reunion steamboat lunch for my own family, join my in-laws for reunion dinner and visit only two or three families.Still, I cannot deny that CNY is the best time to renew and strengthen family bonds.
CNY is beyond buying new clothes, eating and visitations. There is so much significance tied to this festive season and cultural practices or symbols.
