The food is being prepped, houses are being cleaned and decorations are being put up in households as we speak in preparation for Chinese New Year tomorrow. The festivities, however, begin today. In fact, the eve of Chinese New Year is significant because of the reunion dinners that take place, when family members near and far come home and share a meal together.

To get you further into the Chinese New Year mood, here are some catchy advertisements. (Warning: some may cause you to bawl your eyes out).

1. Petronas

A typically touching ad by Petronas this year shows the relationship between a father and his son, especially when it comes to being a family.

2. Pepsi and  7UP

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet? Perhaps not, for being every name, there’s a meaning, as shown in this ad.

3. Digi

A reminder that family goes beyond blood ties and it’s the people you keep near.

4. Maxis

Grandma’s love knows no bounds, so would you be able to take money from your grandma?
