When referring to China’s most significant event, which honors the start of a new year on the ancient lunisolar Chinese calendar, the terms “Chinese New Year,” “Lunar New Year,” and “Spring Festival” are used interchangeably. It falls on February 1, 2022 this year.
It’s the prelude to the Year of the Tiger for Chinese New Year 2022. The event spans from January 31 to February 6, 2022, with New Year’s Day happening on February 1, 2022. Thailand, like other East Asian and Southeast Asian countries, observes the celebration of family and feasts.
The ‘Reunion Dinner’ is one of the most popular components of the Spring Festival. If one could only go home to see relatives for one day throughout the two-week-long Chinese New Year holiday, this would be it. The day before the reunion dinner (and the days immediately prior if the travel home is longer) sees the most packed highways, bus terminals, railway stations, and airports of the year, as everyone eagerly makes the journey home to be with their loved ones.
The supper is seen to be the most important element of the celebration, as well as the most important meal of the year. Large families of numerous generations gather around circular tables to enjoy the cuisine and each other’s company.
For those who work or study elsewhere, the Chinese New Year reunion dinner is the finest opportunity to visit their parents or grandparents. Elders can catch up on how their children and grandkids are doing at the reunion supper.
