Singapore celebrates with so much enthusiasm that their events are some of the largest outside of China - and they get two days of Public Holiday (for the first two days of the new year) to make sure they can celebrate without holding back. Decoration go up, and Chinese style parades – complete with the essential lions, dragons and in 2010 tigers, and plenty of drumming – take place in major cities and towns, usually centring around the local Chinatown. Markets sprout up selling products specific to the New Year and fireworks finish each days festivities, but are especially jubilant for the first day, which is when most of the partying into the small hours takes place.
