The first day of Chinese New Year 2021 in Singapore falls on Friday, 12 February 2021 and the upcoming year is known as Chinese Year of the Ox. Also known as the Lunar New Year, the festival is celebrated as a time of reunion with family with friends, and plenty of feasting too. Chinese New Year’s Eve is traditionally the time for reunion dinners. It is followed by visitations with the extended family and friends over the next few days. With safe distancing measures in place this year due to COVID-19, this year’s festivities may be more subdued as gatherings are currently limited to eight persons. Here is a collection of various things to do and ideas on celebrating Chinese New Year 2021 in Singapore.
