The Second Day of the Chinese or Lunar New Year

The Chinese or Lunar New Year is celebrated for fifteen days starting on the first day of the Lunar New Year which was yesterday, February 18. The celebration actually began the eve of the New Year when family members travel far and wide to return home for the reunion dinner. It is more or less like an exodus. That is why during such major celebrations, the city of Kuala Lumpur is deserted devoid of traffic jams.

Today is the second day of the Chinese New Year. This is the day when married daughters return to visit their parents bearing gifts of foodstuff and oranges, symbols of wealth and properity.
