In addition, the lights of the Taipei 101 are changed to pink to represent “love,” while lighting shows are launched every hour from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., between Dec. 24-31.  

A representative of Taipei 101 said that the campaign has drawn nearly 2,000 people to make a wish. The keywords “love” and “Taiwan” appeared most frequently in the prayers, with records of 250 and 139 times respectively.   

Among thousands of messages, many have expressed hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic would end soon, while some wished that they could travel abroad again, adding that the country they wanted to visit most was Japan.
