Dear fellow food bloggers,
Even if you don't celebrate Lunar New Year I want to wish you all health, happiness and prosperity in the Year of the Dog. Woof, woof!
I noticed a lot of my friends knew the general concepts about the traditions of firecrackers and lion dances, but little else regarding the festivities.
I decided to write a series of posts for the coming week discussing the origins, symbolism, foods and feasts of Chinese Lunar New Year. Here is the link for the Part 1.
I hope it is entertaining, interesting and maybe even useful (want to impress a Chinese friend?).
