Long Noodles

Eating long noodles, like spaghetti, symbolizes living a long life. Slurping these long noodles on New Year’s Day is also considered to be good luck.

Round Cakes

For New Year’s Day dessert you should eat round cakes for good luck. Round cakes also represents your life coming full circle.

Don’t Eat Chicken or Lobster

Some say that it can be bad luck to eat chicken on New Year’s Day because chickens are always scratching backwards. This represents moving backwards or setbacks instead of making positive life progress.

Lobsters also frequently move backwards, especially when they’re in danger. Therefore you should also avoid eating these.

Avoid white foods as well. In Chinese culture, white is an unlucky color that symbolizes death.
