Food-Chinese New Year Traditions

FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file photo shows Chinese people lighting candles to celebrate eve of Chinese Lunar New Year at Hea Tek Tunk Chinese Temple in Bangkok, Thailand. Chinese New Year, celebrated this year on January 31, involves a litany of symbolic foods. Noodles are eaten for long life; clams, because they look like coins, are eaten for wealth; and fish, whose Chinese word sounds similar to the word for “abundance,” symbolizes prosperity. For many families who are part of the Chinese diaspora, eating Chinese food _ whether the symbolic dishes or simply traditional fare _ is a connection to culture. (AP Photo/Sakchai Lalit, File)
