Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) is the most important traditional Chinese holiday, and is celebrated around the world. Like most any family-centered holiday, everyone gathers around for a family feast, making Chinese New Year one of the biggest food holidays of the year. Chinese traditions are rich with wordplay and symbolism, and the same goes with the foods served during Chinese New Year. The celebration for 2015, Year of the Sheep, starts on February 19, and goes on for 15 days.
|Year of the Sheep brings peace, stability, and positive changes. People born in the year of the Sheep are kindhearted and nurturing, artistic, and clever.|
