What is Chinese New Year?
Chinese New Year is the most significant holiday for the Chinese. It starts on the first day of the first month based on the lunar calendar. The date changes each year, but it always falls on the second moon after the winter solstice.
The celebration usually consists of family reunions, fireworks, and the traditional dragon and lion dance. It ends with the Lantern Festival fifteen days later. It is also known as the Spring Festival and everything done during this holiday is meant to bring luck and good fortune for the coming year.Slide3

There are various traditional foods that are eaten during New Years to give good fortune. Two very important dishes are dumplings and fish. These courses represent prosperity. Some others include New Years Cake, Tang Yuan (small rice balls), and
Congee (a mixture of rice, nuts, and beans). These last two foods are typically eaten during the Lantern Festival. Oranges, whose Chinese name sounds like the word for wealth, and tangerines, whose name sounds like the Chinese word for luck, are also very popular foods. Slide8Slide9
