January 28, 2017 is the first day of the New Year on the Chinese calendar, and it not only marks the beginning of the Year of the Rooster but also the beginning of year 4715.
Since the festivities last 15 days, there are plenty of chances to gather at the family table. Eight is the lucky number in the Chinese culture, so a lot of the meals consist of eight courses.
Usually every meal will include a fish and abalone to bring wealth and luck; uncut noodles represent longevity.
Sweet rice balls are usually eaten on the 15th day of the celebrations and togetherness. If you want to attract prosperity, make sure you eat lots of dumplings. They look like coins and may help you make more money in the new year.
