我們回家過年 Let’s Go Home for Chinese New Year

Posted by CRM . on

“過年”是將日子變成一個值得期待的節日,將時間變成一個感人的時刻之大日子。

平常在不同地方上學、工作或已經遷居他處的人門,往往會籌劃幾個月,安排好時間、交通、禮物、工作等問題,就為了回家過年。“回家”是指回到“父母親的家”,也說“老家”,泛指出生所在,回去,是為了看望那裡的人。

人們帶著家眷,拿着他們認為最好的禮物,沿著大大小小的公路、或貫穿東西大道或貫通南北高速公路,不惜花半天或一天的時間在路上,為的就是回家去與父母、公婆及兄弟姐妹團聚,獻上自己的那一份心意。家庭聚會之餘,人們也拜訪親戚、師長、舊友說說話喝喝茶,表達關懷。

所有在“老家”的人們,他們也不閒着,他們提早一個月前就準備烤制新年糕餅,買辦新年擺設如大紅燈籠、喜氣洋洋的春聯、吉祥的黃梨和金桔。之前就要訂好新年的舞龍舞獅活動,新年團圓飯豐盛宴席雞、鴨、魚、肉、蝦、蟹樣樣俱全,在在都為了要迎接孩子們回家來過年。

人們將親情與溫馨溶入每一碗飯每一杯茶,謂之過年。人們將期望與祝願化成熱熱鬧鬧的新年歌、爆竹聲,謂之過年。

走,把紅包封好,把新衣穿好,把禮物拿好,我們回家過年。


Chinese New Year has become a meaningful event for people who celebrate this joyous occasion. People who work or reside in another town or city that is away from their hometown would look forward to this occasion and make all the necessary arrangements in advance so that they can travel home to celebrate Chinese New Year with their family and friends.

When people tell you that they are going “home”, they mean to tell you they are going back to their hometown; a place where they were born, a place where their parents stay, a place where their heart is.

People would not mind the long traveling time spent on heavy traffic highways. The journey home is never lonesome; people would travel with their family members and bring along their best choice of gifts. All they have in mind is going home and have a reunion with their family members whom they treasure in their hometown.

Other than family reunion, people would also take this opportunity to meet up with relatives and old friends over a cup of tea.

Those who are back in hometown have so much to do before Chinese New Year. They start baking festive cookies as early as one month before Chinese New Year. They have a long shopping list with items to buy that are ranging from festive decorative items such as red lanterns, couplets with auspicious greetings; fruits that symbolise prosperity such as pineapples and mandarin oranges. Dragon dance activity is a must have activity during Chinese New Year. Other than that, food ingredients such as poultry and seafood are common items to cook up a scrumptious reunion dinner. All these preparations are done to welcome their children home for such joyous festival.

Chinese New Year is nothing but all about thanksgiving and family reunion. The feelings for Chinese New Year are all written in Chinese New Year songs’ lyrics and the joy is expressed through fireworks.

What are you waiting for! Let’s get the “Ang Pow” in order, get dressed and bring along all the gifts with you, let’s go home for Chinese New Year!
