How are you celebrating Chinese New Year? Wait, what? You didn’t know Chinese New Year is this month? Yes! It is the most important annual event for Chinese and other Asian cultures. Are you familiar with the traditions and authentic foods surrounding Chinese New Year? Previously the only thing I knew about Chinese New Year was what I read on the paper placemats in Chinese restaurants. It was not until I was an adult that I learned about Chinese New Year and it’s traditions and foods.
