Chinese New Year’s Eve, which falls on 7th February 2016, is a special occasion when family members reunite from across the world, to share love and joy through celebrations and food. An occasion for Chinese families to gather for their annual reunion dinner, the Chinese New Year meal usually consists of a communal hot pot or dumplings which bear the cultural meaning of reunion, as well as dishes that symbolize good fortune or happiness.
