2022 Happy Chinese New Year
The Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner, or the Reunion Dinner, is a special occasion when family members get together to celebrate the forthcoming New Year. People who work away from home will go back to their hometown to reunite with their families before New Year’s Eve. It is often considered the most important get-together meal of the entire year.
Lin Yuanyuan, a Nanjing girl who works in other places, tells us her story of returning home on New Year’s Eve to reunite with her family, doing Spring Festival shopping, cleaning, pasting Fu characters (meaning good fortune), making dumplings, giving lucky money in red envelopes, watching the Spring Festival Gala, taking family photos and enjoying the New Year’s Eve Dinner with the whole family.
