This year Chinese New Year begins on Sunday February 10th and heralds in the year of the Snake. Our family celebrates this holiday by attending parties with friends in the Chinese and adoption communities as well as enjoying several large celebration feasts at home. We look forward to feasting on dumplings, long noodles (long noodles represent the New Year's wish for a long life), yummy chicken and beef dishes, rice, and oranges for dessert. And the kids can't wait to open their red envelopes (hong bao) of “lucky money”!
This week I will share with you some of our Chinese New Year decorations and traditions. But today I hope to inspire you to try a few of these New Year's dishes with your own family:
