2013 Chinese New Year Eve’s Dinner Reunion

Every Chinese Year, my big family always gathering together to celebrate it. Usually, we celebrate twice, Chinese New Year Eve and Chinese New Year. Just like New year 1st January.

In Chinese New Year Eve, my mom and aunty cook a lot of food. We gathering and eat reunion dinner before Chinese New Year. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of “good fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”, and “longevity.” Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.

And when the Chinese New Year come, young people give New Year greetings for elder. We ussually wear red clothes.

The most important dishes for Chinese New Year in my family is this, pete or sataw

It’s because, many people in my family like Pete/Sataw, but with different taste (spicy and no spicy), so we serve 3 kind of it.
