Orange trees and plum blossoms. Strings of firecrackers and clusters of gold coins. Dinners with family and offerings to ancestors. No event in the Chinese calender holds a greater importance, or is as richly celebrated, as the Lunar New Year. This complete introduction to the holiday explores its many symbols and rituals, tracing their history and meanings, and describing the differences in its celebration from Hong Kong to Taiwan, Singapore to mainland China. Beginning with notable days in the month preceding the holiday and extendingto the Lantern Festival fifteen days into the New Year, the author guides the reader through the etiquette of gift-giving and the selection of special foods, holiday greetings, and popular decorations. Many Chinese traditions have been lost forever, but in communities throughout the world the anticipation, preparation, and celebration of the Lunar New Year endures.

The Chinese New Year is a time for family reunions. This Chinese children's story tells a delightful trip with lots of cultural details along the way! Jia Jun's Dad worked out of town all year around. Now it's time for him to come home. He took a train, bus, three-wheeled motorcycle, ferry-boat and even walked for many miles. He finally made it home and had a reunion dinner with his family on New Year's Eve. On his trip, as Jia Jun's Dad was rushing to get home, he lost his apple, water, gloves and scarf, but he took very good care of his gift for his son. During the holiday season, Jia Jun was extremely happy as he was with his Dad all the time. They set off firecrackers, put up couplets and even made snowmen. In a few days, Dad was ready to head back to work, but it was certain that Dad would be home again next year to celebrate the Chinese New Year with his family.
