in #ccc โ€ข 2 years ago (edited)

Happy Wednesday,

This is my sample entry to Friday Emoji Contest โทโŽโฟ with title Chinese New Year ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡.

As you may know ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿคญ, Chinese New Year ๐Ÿ‘ฒ ๐Ÿฎ is around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ. Chinese New Year is a Chinese ๐Ÿ‘ฒ festival that celebrates ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese calendar ๐Ÿ“† ๐Ÿ“…. The festival is usually referred to as the Spring Festival in modern China and is one of several Lunar New Years in Asia ๐ŸŒ.

โท 0 โถ โพ is year of pig ๐Ÿ–according to Chinese Zodiac. Chinese Zodiac is based on a โฟ โž• โท years cycle where it related to an animal ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ€sign. These signs are the rat ๐Ÿญ, ox ๐Ÿ‚, tiger ๐Ÿฏ, rabbit ๐Ÿฐ, dragon ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ‰, snake ๐Ÿ, horse ๐Ÿด, goat ๐Ÿ, monkey ๐Ÿต, rooster ๐Ÿ”, dog ๐Ÿถand pig ๐Ÿท. So in year โž 0 โž€ โžˆ, is the last year of the animal sign. Next year โž‹ 0 โž‹ 0 will start from โถ st animal sign again ๐Ÿ˜.

1.Spring cleaning ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ—‘๐Ÿ˜ท๐ŸŒช
Chinese ๐Ÿ‘ฒ do believe that before starting a new year, they need to spring clean their house ๐Ÿ˜†โœŒ. This represent to clean up all the bad luck from last year and have a new start of a new year. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

2.Reunion ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿง“๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿง“๐Ÿง”๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘จDinner ๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฅฉ

New Yearโ€™s Eve dinner ๐Ÿฅข or Reunion dinner ๐Ÿฅข is a must ๐Ÿ‘ for each family. This feast is extremely important to the Chinese. All family members come back ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถโ€โ™€๏ธ and gather together ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ. There are a lot of symbolic dishes served during Chinese New Year eve. Each individual dish is steeped in tradition and is a homonym for a particular blessing for the upcoming year, such as "have a lot of fun" ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜œ or "make a lot of money ๐Ÿ’ฑ๐Ÿ’ณ๐Ÿ’ฒ.

Name and look for each dish is symbol of wishes for prosperity, happiness ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜น and auspiciousness. Such as,

Steam Fish ๐ŸŸ symbolize surplus and wealth๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿ’ฐ

Fish ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽฃis a must for the Chinese New Year. Why does fish symbolize surplus and wealth ๐Ÿ’ฒ? In Chinese, fish (้ฑผ) has the same pronunciation as ไฝ™, which means โ€œsurplusโ€ or โ€œextra.โ€ The typical blessing is ๅนดๅนดๆœ‰ไฝ™, wishing you to have a surplus (or fish) of food and money ๐Ÿ’ฒ every year.

Long Noodles ๐Ÿœor Misua symbolize long life ๐Ÿง“๐Ÿ‘ต

Long noodles ๐Ÿœ represent longevity ๐Ÿง“๐Ÿ‘ต. They usually are served uncut. Misua signifies long life, and the noodle is also a traditional birthday ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿพ dish.

Rice ๐Ÿš Cake ๐Ÿฐ or Nian Gao symbolize a Higher โ‡ง Income ๐Ÿ’ท๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ธ or Position

Nian gao also has the same pronunciation as ้ซ˜ (gฤo). Itโ€™s a wish to be successful and โ€œhigherโ€ โฌ† each year. Every year will be better than the last. Some humorous parents ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง like to tell their children that eating this will help them grow taller โซ too ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚.
They are either made of sticky glutinous rice or yellow rice, giving nian gao two major colors and textures.


Spring roll, or chun juan symbolize wealth ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ถ

Spring roll is a dim sum dish that's named after the Spring Festival. The words chun juan literally mean spring and roll. The golden color of the fried spring rolls represent gold bars โ€” which, of course, symbolize wealth ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿคญ.



3.Red Envelope or Ang Pow ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜›

The money ๐Ÿค‘ in red envelopes is also known as ๅŽ‹ๅฒ้’ฑ ๐Ÿ’Ÿ. Literally, it is โ€œmoney ๐Ÿ’ต to anchor the year.โ€ It is also known as โ€œlucky moneyโ€ or โ€œNew Yearโ€™s money.โ€ Ang pow normally given by married couples ๐Ÿ‘ซ and parents ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ง to children ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿง’ and single youths ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿ‘ฉ. Red packets symbolise luck and are supposed to ward off evil spirits ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ‘ฟ. When adults give red packets to children, they will say ๐Ÿ—ฃ something auspicious by way of blessing ๐Ÿค—.
