How are you? Hope you all had a good winter break and enjoy the new semester! (maybe not the homework huh?) As we all know, it was Lunar New Year last week and according to Chinese tradition, I should eat dumplings--so, I made dumplings!
Chinese Lunar New Year is also called Spring Festival, besides China, there are many other Asian countries celebrating it too. It is the biggest festival in China and it is the time that family should get together after being busy for a year. In Chinese tradition, family members usually get together on the night before lunar January first, have a feast and watch the Winter Gala on CCTV. Also, kids in a family usually get Red Envelopes (full of money, lol) from their grandparents, parents, and other relatives. The celebration usually lasts 15 days, which is the lunar January 15th. People eat sweet rice balls on that day to end the celebration.
I haven't been back home for Spring Festival for 3 years--because of the different winter break time. I didn't celebrate it here in last 2 years because there wasn't that atmosphere. But I really miss home this year, so my friends and I made dumplings to celebrate it. Well, if you like dumplings too, we can make some together!
