Today is the last day of The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival.
The national holiday begins on the first of the Lunar Calendar and lasts until the 15th of the first month. In 2019, Chinese New Year begins on February 5th and ends February 19th.

The Chinese New Year holiday comes to its climax with the Yuan Xiao (元宵节—yuán xiāo jié) or Lantern Festival. I don’t have pictures of Lantern in Singapore so I’ll just share a picture of the Fireworks I shot in Singapore last week with the Canon Singapore group.

Superstitions & beliefs
Lanterns (天灯—tiān dēng) sounds similar to (添丁—tiān dīng), or “add children.” Many will light lanterns in hopes of adding children to the family.
=> I can guarantee you that’s not going to happen 😉
