Although the society is increasingly modern, with the tradition of respecting the family, the people of these countries still keep the tradition of going back to their hometown to celebrate Lunar New Year with their loved ones.
Although the traditional celebration of welcoming the new year is different in each country, when the old year passes and the new year comes, everyone in the family gathers together and performs traditional rituals, with Wishing you a happy new year with many good things.
