Diverse cultural celebrations in Singapore
As Singapore is blessed with a diverse range of races and cultures, one can always look forward to party throwing and joyful celebrations in Singapore. Regardless of your beliefs or customs, here are the top traditional events that unite us as Singaporeans.
Chinese New Year Celebrations (1 February 2022)
Also known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival, the Chinese values this date as the start of a new lunar calendar year. This is often accompanied by the old-time tradition of house visits and family reunion. It’s the best feeling to receive red packets with the year’s zodiac animal printed on them. Traditionally, it was a time to honour both traditional deities and familial ancestors.
Ramadan (2 April 2022)
Ramadan is a sacred month for Muslims who practice fasting, meditation and prayers. It’s commemorated as the month when Muhammad received the first revelations of the Quran. Ramadan reminds us of the importance of self-discipline, kindness and gratitude. Hence, this encourages the actions of generosity and charity.
Deepavali (24 October 2022)
Deepavali, also known as Diwali or the Holiday of Lights, is a significant cultural festival in Singapore for Indians. Celebrants will prepare by cleaning, renovating and decorating their spaces with oil lamps and rangolis. Deepavali symbolises “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.”
Christmas Celebrations (25 December 2022)
Christmas Day is a sacred day for the Christians. It’s a religious holiday with traditional customs that include attending church and sharing meals with family and friends. Though the majority of us live in flats and don’t have chimneys to decorate with fluffy Christmas socks, nothing stops Singaporeans from dazzling up their Christmas trees and doing gift exchanges with their loved ones.
