Lucky New Year Traditions

Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, is the celebration of the lunar calendar. Each year represents a zodiac animal. 2022 is the Year of the Tiger. Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days (which falls on Feb. 1-15 this year) and is a time for loved ones to come together with food and good company. To ensure good luck in the new year, people wear the lucky color red, and eat plenty of symbolic foods such as:

πŸ₯ŸDumplings for Wealth – It is said that the person who eats the most dumplings will amass the most wealth that year! Dumplings symbolize wealth because they resemble little coin purses.
