It has become part of Filipino tradition to celebrate Chinese New Year because of the strong influence of Chinese culture in the country since its early days. Among the traditions that Pinoys follow is the partaking of tikoy (glutinous rice) for the celebration to inspire unity and harmony among families and friends.
According to Chinese tradition, the stickiness of the tikoy connotes togetherness and unity so giving and receiving of tikoy is expected to spread good luck and inspire a harmonious relationship for both the giver and receiver.
