Chap Goh Meh

26 February

Fifteen days after Chinese New Year is the day Chap Goh Mei is celebrated to mark the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations. The Chap Goh Mei festival is celebrated with a massive prayer ceremony, where large plugs will be burned and a big meal will be held with the family. Fireworks were lit and lanterns were lit to celebrate Chap Goh Mei. Chap Goh Mei is also considered as a night to find a partner where the girls will dress beautifully and visit wat to pray for a suitable partner. There is also the practice of throwing lemons into the sea or river with prayers for a mate. Wet lemons carry the order so that they get the right pair. Chinese cultural performances will be held in the evening to mark the Chap Goh Mei festival such as lantern parades, dragon or lion dance, Chinese opera, and the “Chingay” flag.
