Chinese New Year Traditions

Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, is celebrated by most countries all over Asia and almost all over the world. It’s a time for family, friends, and great food. One of the most common traditions is the use of fireworks.

The loud noise is said to scare away evil spirits, and the bright lights are meant to symbolize a fresh start. Families will often prepare a feast to enjoy on New Year’s Eve, and traditional dishes such as dumplings and noodles are often served.

On New Year’s Day itself, it’s customary to visit relatives and give them red envelopes filled with money. It’s a joyful time of year, and these traditions are just a few of the things that make it so special.
