Avoid a springtime surprise

created: 2009-12-25

In the West, Christmas notoriously comes earlier every year, and in China Spring Festival is much the same way. Already, preparations are underway for family dinners that won't take place until mid- February. Nianyefan (the dinner held on Chinese New Year's Eve) is the pinnacle of the festival and the most important meal of the year, a time when everyone gathers for family reunions. Hence, Nianyefan is also called Tuanyuanfan (the family-reunion dinner).

Nowadays, many families are fed up with the tiring preparations and have the financial ability to choose to dine outside. Nianyefan dinner has been popular in most Chinese restaurants for more than 10 years, and its popularity continues to increase, to the degree that a banquet room in some restaurants must be booked a year in advance.
