‘Chap Goh Mei’ itself means the 15th night of Chinese New Year in Hokkien, which also marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebration. The day is celebrated similarly to the day before Chinese New Year is
celebrated –with much joy and festivity. During Chap Goh Mei, families
gather over a grand meal which includes Yuan Xiao (glutinous rice balls)
and homes are beautifully lit with red lanterns. At the temples during
Chap Goh Mei, people offer prayers to the God of Prosperity to bless
their family with good fortune for the coming year. Traditionally, the day is punctuated by the sounds of the love ballad
called Dondang Sayang that is sung in streets to the instruments of a
violin, two drums and a gong. Sometimes this becomes comedy when the
lyrics are changed by the singers. The tradition of throwing oranges originated from Sarawak. If you
visit the Esplanade at Singapore there are competitions where boys in boats
are required to scoop up oranges thrown into the sea by girls, and the
boat with the most oranges wins the competition. Activities like these
are carried out to keep the traditions alive.
