There will be parades and performances, ranging from dragon dancing and fireworks. And of course, the most important element of Chinese New Year is sharing festive food with families and friends.
In Chinese New Year, fish, chicken, tofu and noodles are some of the must have food items for a family gathering. Eating fish means you always have a surplus in the coming year, while eating a whole chicken with family means a united front. Tofu is associated with happiness while consuming noodles on New Year day means good health and longevity in life.
