Celebrate Chinese New Year with a feast and this free Lucky Red Envelopes Free Printable.
Chinese New Year Feast with many Asian foods

Since we are a transracial family, it is important to us that we partake in customs from our various cultures. Not only to benefit our Asian child but to develop an understanding and appreciation of other cultures. We enjoy Chinese Hot Pot and love to give out Chinese Red Envelopes on Chinese New Year.

Year of the Dog

One of our favorite traditions is Chinese New Year. The Year of the Dog starts February 16. People born in the Year of the Dog are loyal, friendly, and kind, just like man’s best friend. Dogs will do everything for the person in their life who is the most important to them. They are often seen as stubborn because communication is not their strong suit, but they are usually good-natured and helpful.

Our family’s favorite part of Chinese New Year is the meal. We enjoy a big feast at home. The meal is a mixture of our favorites and traditional foods. Our table includes noodles which symbolize happiness and longevity, dumplings or potstickers that represent wealth, and oranges for good luck. The table also has red on it, which represents joy and good fortune. We also have Red Envelopes.

Chinese Red Envelopes

Red Envelopes are a fun tradition. These envelopes are filled with money to be passed out during holidays and special occasions. Our children love getting these envelopes. Not only is the money inside desirable, the designs on the outside of the envelopes are pretty.

Not everyone has access to these envelopes, so I have created an envelope printable for you. It has the ‘Fu’ symbol, which means good luck or fortune. The Fu symbol is associated with Chinese New Year. It is often seen upside down at the entrance of a Chinese home. This is to wish prosperity to all who come into the home. The freebie is a wish of good fortune to you. Download the envelope pattern at the bottom of the post.

Chinese New Year Meal

We have been very busy lately, which has limited our time to prepare our New Year feast. Luckily Ling Ling offers authentic Asian style frozen foods that are quick and easy to prepare. We added Ling Ling Yakisoba Noodles to our table. These traditional Asian style noodles are infused with a tasty soy-based yakisoba sauce and contain grilled white-meat chicken and vegetables.

In addition to these delicious noodles, Ling Ling carries delicious potstickers and fried rice.
