Singapore is a multi-racial nation and we celebrate cultural diversity. We have many practices and celebrations by different races such as Chinese New Year, Christmas, Vesak Day, Dragon Boat Festival, Deepavali, Hari Raya, etc.
It is important for us to practise respect for one another regardless of race and religious beliefs.
Racial harmony is part of building a strong foundation for our nation. We are one of the few countries where different religious institutions (e.g. church, mosque and temple) are located next to one another and co-existing peacefully.
We also rejoice in food cuisine diversity; hence we are a known food paradise.
