This is also known as “Yuen Xiao” – Chinese Valentine’s day.
Chap Goh Meh
In the past, it is traditional for single women to toss oranges written with descriptions of their desired partner into the river to seek a husband.
However, in today’s modern practice, men are also known to practise this in order to find a suitable wife.
Candles are lit in paper lanterns and hung up on the outside of the home, and “Tong Yuen” is often eaten as dessert on the final celebration dinner of the year.
In areas where a river is not available, Sky Lanterns written with their wishes are set free to soar into the heavens in search of their potential mates.
Carry the 9 Tail Fox Amulet keychain to help meet your potential new partner.
