HallieDaily 's Thoughts:

Given the importance of food in Chinese culture, it is not surprising that food plays a major role in Chinese New Year celebrations. “Lucky” foods are served through the two week Chinese New Year celebration, also called the Spring festival.

What gives a certain food symbolic significance? Sometimes it is based on appearance. For example, serving a whole chicken during the Chinese New Year season symbolizes family togetherness. Noodles represent a long life; an old superstition says that it’s bad luck to cut them. Both clams and Spring Rolls symbolize wealth; clams because of their resemblance to bouillon, and Spring Rolls because their shape is similar to gold bars.

On the other hand, a food may have special significance during Chinese New Year because of the way the Chinese word for it sounds. For example, the Cantonese word for lettuce sounds like rising fortune, so it is very common to serve a lettuce wrap filled with other lucky food. Tangerines and oranges are passed out freely during Chinese New Year as the words for tangerine and orange sound like luck and wealth.

I was shooting some tangerines and oranges pictures around our yard, wish you all the luck and wealth. !!!
