Chinese New Year is the Traditional Start of Spring. In the Philippines it is 
normally celebrated on the third week of January, Which is Jan 28, Saturday and is 
observed as a special non working holiday. Here, Filipino-Chinese communities 
celebrate Chinese New Year with family and friends for fiesting and little fireworks. 
I remember going to boning and seeing the celebration first hand. The whole place is 
decorated; everybody is happy, lots of food on sale and is best for you to walk. You 
can see a lot of dragon and lion dancers on streets and establishments dancing on the 
beat of oriental drums. They say dragons and lions are a symbol of great power, 
dignity, fertility, wisdom and auspiciousness. The lion symbolizes success, 
prosperous, fearlessness and joy. The celebration is also in aspiration of attracting 
good fortune, strong family ties and to ward off evil spirits. Famous on these 16 day 
festival season is the tikoy. A Chinese sticky sweet treat that symbolizes the 
attraction of good luck and a strong sticky family bond.
Lucky foods to eat during 
Chinese New Year have been observed because of their symbolism and meaning. To start 
is the all time favorite noodles. A symbol of happiness and longevity to the eater.

Sweet Rice Balls which symbolizes Family togetherness, reunion and being with each 

Chinese Dumplings which means Wealth.
A different Dumpling Fillings Have different 
meaning some adds a copper coin in the dumpling and the one who eats it is lucky 
enough to become rich and wealthy. Traditionally, dumplings with cabbage and radish 
are also eaten, implying that ones skin will become healthy and ones outlook will 
become successful. Fish is for Increase in Prosperity. Another famous food is fruits. 
We can all agree that this is something that is always mentioned on TV and radio 
programs on Chinese New Year.
They symbolize Good Fortune, Fullness and Wealth
Fruits eaten and sometimes decorated as centre pieces during the Chinese New Year 
period are tangerines, oranges, and pomelos. They are handpicked because they are 
round and "golden" in color, symbolizing fullness and wealth. Chinese New Year 
fruits, again eaten or displayed, like tangerines and oranges is believed to bring 
good luck and fortune. While eating pomelos is thought to bring continuous 
prosperity. Of course the more you eat the more wealth it will bring. Finally there 
are a lot more to mention but in the Philippines we believe these are the most common
