It is the last day of the Chinese New Year or Imlek. The festival means "the 15th night", hence, it is celebrated 15 days after Imlek, when the full moon will be at its brightest. Chinese descendants all over the world, including Chinese-Indonesian, celebrate this day with vibrant festivals. The festival usually includes Barongsai (lion) and Liong (dragon) performance. During the festival, the Barongsai and Liong will come to the homes or business places of the Chinese people to cast out bad luck, and in return, they will get angpao (money in a red envelope).
