Many Thai Chinese keep the traditions. Before they serve New Year Eve dinner, man of the house leads the family to pay respect to their ancestors; to this day, they still get down on their knees in front of the ancestors’ photos.

After the dinner, they burn fake money and gold blocks for their ancestors. It’s a symbol of remembering their ancestors, also they wish ancestors a good life in another world.
