On Chinese New Year Eve, all family members gather to have the most important reunion meal in the entire year. This is similar to Christmas dinner for westerners. Therefore, Chinese families usually serve expensive cuisines like shark-fins and abalones during this day. Traditionally, the meal is prepared by all adult female members of the family, which helps binding a close relationship amongst the female members. As more women join the work-force, the responsibility is passed to whoever available on that day. Nowadays many families opt to dine out for this special meal and reservations must be made months before to ensure availability.
Chinese New Year 2009 falls on January 26th and will mark the 15 day long festivities beginning on the said date and going on till the 9th February.
Chinese have a unique way of representing the New Year through animals. They have 12 different animals to represent each year of the 12 year -cycle and the order remains the same throughout with the year of the rat beginning the cycle and the year of the boar/ pig ending the same. As the Chinese year 2008 was signified as the year of the rat, this year2009, is going to be the year of the ox (niu). So, you can hear ox related Chinese “Niu” Year Greetings, niu zhuan qian kun “ç‰›è½¬ä¹¾å¤” , niu nian xing da yun “ç‰›å¹´è¡Œå¤§è¿” etc..
