Hainan Tan Clan Association Chinese New Year Open House
On Chinese New Year Eve, Hainan Tan Clan Association had an offering and prayer session for our ancestors. In the evening, we went back to the association building for the annual CNY vigil (守岁).
On the third day of Chinese New Year, my husband and I had 4 invitations to several clan associations' Chinese New Year Open House and 2 friends' gathering.
We could only attend two clan associations' CNY celebrations and visit one friend's house.
We had buffet lunch with members of Hainan Tan Clan Association. The clan association hired a God of Fortune to distribute angpows (red packets) to members. Many members posed for photos with him.
Each member received two mandarin oranges and a red packet for good luck.
