The tradition is for the extended family members to come together for a reunion during the Chinese New Year. We may not have been in touch with our brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and those connected with the family for a whole year. It is this time of the year that we catch up on the developments in our lives since the last reunion.
It is also time for us to renew kinship ties and to forgive what ill-feelings we may have of any member of the family.
During the New Year, let us remember to take care of ourselves and to be nice to others. May the year bring good fortunes, health and happiness to all.
