Gung Hay Fat Choy 2019
Today, 5 February 2019, is the first day of Chinese New Year celebrations – the Year of the Pig begins. We wish all our partners Gung Hay Fat Choy.
New Year Celebrations are very much centered around eating and dining out with family. At this time of year, Chinese restaurants around the province are at their busiest, catering to large groups and families wishing to celebrate together.
If you are serving New Year’s meals the next two weeks, we wish you much prosperity and happiness. May your seats be filled every night.
If you are interested in being part of the celebration, consider dining out and trying some of the many dishes eaten for symbolic purposes. Some foods, such as spring rolls and dumplings, are consumed for luck and hopes of a prosperous year ahead. Other dishes, such as rice balls, symbolize family and togetherness.
Metro Vancouver, with our world renowned Chinese Dining scene, is the envy of the country. The BCRFA is proud to celebrate the New Year with our many outstanding chefs and restaurateurs.
