As for chinese , they will call this day as "chor gau" or some of them even called it as "bai tien gong"which would be mainly celebrated by Hokkien community around the world. The early hours was Not only surrounded by fireworks displays but it came along with "who let the dogs out- barking here and there all the way" Oh gosh --
The dovotee basically offerred their Emperor of Heaven - Gods, sugarcanes (which was believed to be the savior of the day during the old days back) , tea and mass fireworks display -which i think is much better than the English New Year celebration :)
