Every year at midnight of Chinese New Year's day, Mom and Dad go to three temples to pray, and have been doing it since they were children. The years when I've been in Taiwan and didn't have to work, I went with them. This year I got to go too.
Longshan Temple (龍山寺) -> Tianhou Temple (天后宮), Xingtian Temple (行天宮)
It was in the middle of the night, but just like in Japan, tons of people have come out to give thanks for the previous year, and to pray for something for the new year.
The pictures are here.
