Celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year with homemade dumplings

Today marks the 30th day of the 12th month on the Chinese lunar calendar, also known as "Chuxi," or "Spring Festival's Eve."

On this day, Chinese families come together for a special reunion dinner. In the south, people often eat tangyuan, glutinous rice balls stuffed with a sweet or salty filling that represent hopes for togetherness and a complete New Year. In the north, the tradition is to eat dumplings, symbolizing the start of the New Year and thought to bring good fortune.
