Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental are one with our Chinese brothers and sisters in celebrating the Lunar New Year as we welcome the Year of the Tiger with vibrant celebrations and time-honored traditions.

The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is a momentous occasion that transcends geographical boundaries, uniting families and communities in a shared celebration of renewal, good fortune, and cultural richness.

One of the key aspects of the Chinese New Year is the emphasis on family reunions. The holiday sees a massive movement of people across the globe, as families strive to come together, and celebrate the new beginning as one unit.

It is a time for reflection, gratitude, and the strengthening of familial bonds. This tradition reflects the deep-rooted cultural values of unity, respect for elders, and the importance of maintaining strong family ties.

Food plays a central role in the Chinese New Year celebrations, with families coming together to prepare and share special dishes.

In addition to the festivities, the Chinese New Year is a time for reflection on the year gone by, and setting intentions for the year ahead.

Many engage in the tradition of cleaning and decorating their homes to sweep away any lingering negativity from the past, and make way for positive energy and good luck. The practice of setting off fireworks and firecrackers also serves as a symbolic gesture to ward off evil spirits and welcome the new year with a bang.

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the celebration of the Chinese New Year has transcended its cultural origins, and become a global phenomenon. Cities around the world host parades, dragon dances, and other festivities that showcase the beauty and diversity of Chinese culture. This global participation not only promotes cultural exchange but also fosters a sense of unity and understanding among people of different backgrounds.

As we usher in the Year of the Tiger, let us embrace the spirit of renewal, cultivate a sense of unity, and take inspiration from the rich traditions of the Chinese New Year to create a brighter and more harmonious future for all.

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Wishing you prosperity and good fortune this 2024. Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental are one with our Chinese brothers and sisters in celebrating the Lunar New Year as we welcome the Year of the Tiger with vibrant celebrations and time-honored traditions.
