During the new year, the Chinese community observes various customs and rituals. A common tradition is gifting children money wrapped in red envelopes. The colour red is believed to be lucky and bring prosperity. It is a symbol of wealth, following which, all the doors and windows are painted in red, and the streets are decorated with red lanterns and paper puppets. Besides, they also believe in paying off all debts.
As a part of the celebrations, the community also arranges lion dances, dragon dances, parades, lantern festivals at local temples and many more. Tourists from all over the world take part in the celebrations as well. In the Philippines, tourists can enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches along with the new year celebrations.
