Chinese New Year Traditions Change Sometimes.

That is the case for our family during this year, the year of the dog.

Of course, Chinese New Year traditions change sometimes but there are also wonderful traditions that should stand the test of time.


I love this holiday for all the joy it brings and for all that it represents. If you would like to learn to learn more about the exact traditions then I believe you will enjoy this article.


As for my family and how things have changed this year…


Two of my three wonderful kids are too far away to eat the traditional meal with us.I would love to sit across the table from them. However,  I am not really one to dwell on what I can’t have due to the fact that I do my best to look on the positive side of things.


I look forward to a wonderful Chinese New Year dinner with my hubby and our younger son. 


We will eat traditional foods such as noodles to represent a long life and we will proudly give him lucky money.


The hubby and I will reflect on how our family has grown and changed over the years. We will count our blessings and be grateful for our life.


Over the weekend, the hubby and I will continue the Chinese New Year celebration as we enjoy our Valentine’s vacation.



I wish for you to have a very Happy Chinese New Year and a long and wonderful life. Click To Tweet

  1. I love celebrating special days within different cultures. They give you a sense of belonging to that culture. My husband is from Colombia, so we celebrate many different ways than the culture we live in. Awesome.

  2. So much season of change going on. You are such an amazing mom and woman, Elise! It must be joyous to have your children move on for their lives, but yet bittersweet so to speak especially when you have such a close family.
    Happy New Year.

  3. We have been in a season of change as well. With my daughter out of the house, we have just had our younger son at home. It has definitely meant some changes but not all bad. I especially love this “The hubby and I will reflect on how our family has grown and changed over the years. We will count our blessings and be grateful for our life.”
    We have been doing this as well. Life gets really challenging sometimes but it helps to remember and be grateful for our blessings. Thank you!

  4. I’m half-Chinese but we never really go all out for New Year’s. Maybe that will be something to do when our daughter is older!
