Happy Chinese New Year!
The Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or the Lunar New Year, is a time for families to come together and celebrate the start of a new year on the lunar calendar. This year marks the Year of the Rabbit, which is said to bring peace, stability, and good luck.
One of the most important traditions during the Chinese New Year is the exchange of red envelopes filled with money, known as "hongbao," between family and friends. The red colour symbolizes good luck and prosperity for the new year.
Decorations, such as red lanterns and paper cutouts, are also commonly used to add a festive touch to homes and businesses. In addition, fireworks and lion dances are often performed to drive away evil spirits and bring good luck for the new year.
Food also plays a big role in the Chinese New Year celebrations. Traditional dishes such as dumplings, fish, and sticky rice cakes are often served. The round shape of dumplings symbolizes unity and togetherness, while the fish represents abundance and surplus for the new year.
Another important aspect of the Chinese New Year is the reunion dinner, where family members gather together to enjoy a feast and catch up on each other's lives. It is considered a time for forgiveness, harmony and good wishes for the upcoming year.
