Giving tangerines or oranges during the Chinese New Year is connoting a sense of abundance as one is seen to be giving happiness and prosperity. The exchange of oranges when you visit a relative’s home is also a nod of respect and tradition. The orange hue of these fruits also symbolises “gold”, hence its auspiciousness warrants its presence at home.

Observers waiting for devotees at this elaborate tent during Thaipusam, a Hindu Tamil festival to celebrate the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a Vel "spear" so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman. It is commonly believed that Thaipusam marks Murugan's birthday.

Devotees practiced Kavadi Attam or "Burden Dance" during the worship of Lord Murugan, the Hindu God of War. It is a central part of the festival of Thaipusam and emphasizes debt bondage. The burden itself is a physical burden, the bearing of which is used by the devotee to implore Murugan for assistance, usually on behalf of a loved one who is in need of healing, or as a means of balancing a spiritual debt. Devotees process and dance along a pilgrimage route while bearing these burdens.
