Chinese New Year's Eve (Chuxi)

Today is Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the 12th lunar month. Chu literally means "change" and xi means "eve".

Traditionally, Chinese New Year is an occasion of family reunion. On the Eve, the reunion dinner is the highlight of every family, signifying togetherness.

A market scene - goodies were on sale early this morning.

The Eve has kept Yian non-stop for the whole day long. She took it up all by herself to come out with 15 dishes for the reunion dinner.

Before we settled down on the gorgeous dinner, we gave a thanksgiving prayer to God for His gracious care and love.

The delectable reunion dinner - Almighty God, thank you for the nourishment you have provided us.
