Chinese New Year is traditionally celebrated through the reunion of family, the return of prosperity and abundance, and giving away happiness to those that are close to you.
When family and friends get together, it makes reunions more meaningful; they bring warm memories back to us, with the smell of delicious food, and family members who care about each other very much.
That is why there’s no better time to plan a reunion than right now! If it’s your first time hosting a CNY family reunion dinner and don’t know where to start or what to include, we got you covered!

2. Toss Lou Hei
Another fun and traditional way to celebrate CNY is tossing up abundance with Lo Hei! Lo Hei is the Cantonese word for tossing up good fortune. It is typically a Cantonese tradition in which people gather around a Lo Hei platter and toss it up while shouting words of blessings in Chinese. It symbolizes the desire to bring good fortune to everyone who participates in this tradition and is usually performed during Chinese New Year dinners.
Lo Hei can be made with many different ingredients, but the most common ones used include dried shrimp, roasted pork, salted egg yolk (yolk only), peanuts, sea cucumber, tofu skin and chicken floss.
If you're tossing up abundance with Lou Hei, we have the perfect one for you! Our Lou Hei Platter is made from 100% sustainable melamine material which makes it durable, shatterproof and break-resistant.
