Gong hei fat choy! February 16 marks the beginning of the Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac.
The celebration of Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, dates back thousands of years and is the most important festival in China. Chinese New Year is all about togetherness and is a time when family and friends gather together to feast and welcome the new year. A variety of lucky foods are traditionally eaten for their symbolic meaning determined by either their Chinese pronunciation or physical appearance—with individual dishes representing specific aspects of good fortune to come in the new year.
