Reunion dinners, hot pot, lor hei, visiting Chinatown to watch the dragon dance — these all come to my mind when Lunar New Year rolls around.

We celebrate with food, always, but also with family and taking the opportunity to share our beloved celebrations with our friends across cultures. While the ways we currently celebrate Lunar New Year may be different today when compared to celebrations of the past, the rich cultural storytelling behind it has not been lost.
