Today is Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year. This year is the year of the Goat or Sheep depending on what you want to call it. I’ve heard it both ways.
There are a whole list of traditions and things that people do to prepare and celebrate the new year – way too many to list here and my family only does a handful of them. I thought I’d just share a couple food pictures of things that my family ate (or made in advance for today) last night for New Year’s Eve, which is a mix of typical foods for the new year and things my family traditionally eats to celebrate.
Aside from all the food and various other customs, it is traditional to wear red on Chinese New Year because it symbolizes fortune and luck. I’ll share my OOTD from the day soon, probably tomorrow!
