Food-Chinese New Year Traditions

FILE - This Feb. 6, 2013 file photo shows a woman walking out a shop selling seasonal items ahead of Chinese New Year in Chinatown 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)
