Chinese New Year traditions vary from region to region in China, and within ethnic groups who migrated away from the mainland. While some traditions have fallen victim to modern times, many are still celebrated by even those who claim not to be superstitious.
Don't just watch the fireworks and lion dances; you'll get more out of the celebration once you understand some of the Chinese New Year traditions!
The eve of Chinese New Year is typically celebrated with a family dinner of fish and dumplings -- which symbolize wealth because of their shape. Southern Chinese celebrate by preparing a special cake known as niangao, and by giving small pieces of it to friends and family.

Firecrackers and spectacular fireworks displays -- meant to scare away evil spirits -- can be seen in many cities on the eve of Chinese New Year.
Spread over 15 consecutive days, these Chinese New Year traditions have been observed for centuries.
