I am a Chinese. :) so basically I celebrate Chinese new year! some people call it Lunar New year.
I like Chinese new year. not only u get extra income ;) but you also get to reunite with your family members. You get to visit your long-distant relatives. You get to meet your cousins, aunts and uncles. There will be joys and laughters. there are also foods. cookies. sweets. as well as chocolate :D we get to eat till how much our stomach can fill. parents don't care whether you gonna fall sick after that.
There is a significance in celebrating Chinese new year. Chinese are more family priority. celebrating Chinese new year has a few traditions that i really looking forward to. such as reunion dinner the night before the new year. Every family members are called to gather in family's house to have a sumptuous dinner. so, when we miss out our Chinese new year celebration, we kinda miss the atmosphere during the reunion dinner as well as the first day of the Chinese new year where all relatives will be gathered in a house. we get to play with our cousins. and some elderly people will do some gambling :) so the significant of celebrating Chinese new year is : all the family members are gathered.
I had my delicious home made cooks just now. i hope u fill your stomach well too. and happy Chinese New Year :D have a prosperous year in the year of rabbit.
