One of the common practice is the Steamboat feast which is typically served during the reunion dinner or throughout Chinese New Year due to its auspicious characteristics in keeping the fire burning and "ONG" (as translated from Hokkien.

To me, it's been a truly common practice in my granny's house to have steamboat every year.

P.S.: We got tired of steamboat (after 3 continuous days of steamboat for almost every meal) that even the mere mention of steamboat sent us hiding!!
