Happy Chinese New Year, the year of Rooster. Here is a favorite ritual of mine, the Chinese New Year Tray of Togetherness. The Tray of Togetherness is a Chinese candy box (Red) with compartments that you fill up with all different kind of candies, all of which have symbolically lucky meanings. Then when friends and family visit, you offer them the candy box along with your blessings. I usually just pick whatever tastes good without much thought 😉 In case you are curious, candy means “Sweetness of Life” and “Fortune”.
