Imlek atau Chinese New Year

Written by Gouw Tjie Liong, Ir., M.Eng, ChFC, PhD. Posted in General, Life

Imlek atau Chinese New Year adalah tradisi berkumpul keluarga, makan bersama keluarga dari kakek hingga buyut di malam akhir tahun kalendar Lunar.

Pagi hari menyambut tahun baru Lunar kembali berkumpul bersama keluarga besar. Bercengkarama, melupakan semua urusan bisnis, ngobrol ngalor ngidul bertukar pengalaman, menikmati kebersamaan. Tradisi yang sangat baik.

Namun, di akhir tahun tikus yang baru bbrp jam berlalu, kita tidak bisa kumpul  bersama keluarga inti segaris. Di hari Imlek inipun tidak bisa berkumpul bersama keluarga besar.

Sepanjang umur ini baru kali ini bahkan keluarga dari engkong hingga cucu tidak bisa kumpul bersama. Gegara Covid belum mau berlalu.

Semoga wabah ini cepat berlalu. Sudah setahun dia membuat kehidupan kita semua menjadi terbatas 🙁

Mari kita sambut tahun kerbau dengan semangat lebih tinggi. Semangat kebersamaan. Semangat perjuangan. Semangat membuat kehidupan lebih nyaman dan damai sejahtera bagi semua umat manusia.

Selamat berjuang di tahun kerbau. Happy CNY 💪😊😊💪
