Claimed to be a grander spectacle compared to the first day of Chinese New Year, the Hokkien community welcomes their New Year on the ninth day of the Chinese New Year. When we say grander, we meant a robust and colourful showcase of Chinese dance shows, firework displays and abundance of festive symbolism like sugarcane stalks, pineapples, bottles of liquor, red tortoise cake and more. The Hokkien New Year honours the birthday of the Jade Emperor God who protected the ancestors of the Hokkien community from a merciless army in China.
