2012's Reunion Dinner is on 22 January. For a Chinese, no matter where they are, the most important festival must be the Lunar Spring Festival, which is regarded as a time for family reunion. The top event of this festival is the Reunion Dinner on Chinese New Year’ Eve. Every year when that day is coming, you can see people crowded in railway and coach station and airport as well. That’s because they don’t want to miss the Reunion Dinner with their families. Despite the severe cold and rush traffic, many people travel a long distance to go home. For most of Chinese, Family Value is among the top concerns of their whole lives. People cherish the feelings of coming back together with their family members.
On Chinese New Year’s Eve, young people tend to see their parents, together with their children and have dinner together. If it is a big family, you can see a very lively scene－Women were busy in the kitchen; Men were talking loudly in the living room; Children were chasing each other from one room to the other…The house was filled with laugh and the smell floating from the kitchen makes you run at the mouth. When the dinner finally began, the whole families were sitting around the table, raising their glass of wine, greeting each other, making jokes…they were immersed in the great joy, forgetting all the hard times and worries of the whole year. What a great picture it is! This is really the human happiness given by the Mother Nature.
Everything, however, needs to be balanced. After the overly splendid dinner and excitement, people tend to feel uncomfortable more or less. For example, too much meat, like fish, beef, pork, lamb, would cause dyspepsia while excessive drinking hurts your liver. These outcomes highly affect people’s emotions in the happy holidays.
Nowadays, fortunately, more and more people begin to attach importance to their daily diet and choose healthy food for their families. In addition to the common food, some special supplements and Chinese herbal soups might be a good option because the pace of our life now is really fast.
In short, for modern people, how to keep a balance between the traditional customs and body health is something worth to think about.
