TAICHUNG, TAIWAN (TTNews) – Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, is regarded as the most prominent traditional holiday of the year, widely celebrated by the Chinese people throughout the world. Having the most square meals was a much-anticipated part of the Lunar New Year’s celebrations since all the family members would gather around the house. Some of the dishes are eaten because of their auspicious names or meanings that convey special wishes for blessing or good fortune.

For instance, turnip cake is a traditional snack made of shredded radish and plain rice flour. Turnip cake is traditionally eaten during the Lunar New Year for bringing good luck in the year to come. Turnip or radish sounds like “lucky” in Taiwanese; hence, it is vastly believed that eating turnip cake or any dishes made out of radish would bring good luck.

In addition, it is customary to eat vegetarian dishes in the morning of Chinese New Year; thus, most of families would have vegetable-based and rice-based meals. Turnip cake has become one of the common foods that is served as breakfast on the first day of the Lunar New Year.
