What is Chinese New Year (or Lunar New Year) all about? As I tried to teach it to my daughter, Lina<3. It is about the Chinese culture, and family. It is about wishing each other well. It is the most important holiday for us, Chinese people (to be politically correct, the Chinese are not the only ones celebrating this holiday). It is about a new year, looking forward and not back. There are many traditions, superstitions, foods, events, and lai see (red envelopes with money) during the holiday.
