How do you spend Chinese New Year’s eve?

First of all, Happy Chinese New Year. Was your New Year’s eve eventful? Living in Sydney has resulted in a distinct lack of interest for Chinese New Year in my family.

A typical New Year’s eve in my family involves dinner with the whole family, followed by my parents pestering me to stream the Spring Festival Evening Gala for them. Which I will grudgingly do, only for them to watch a couple of skits before claiming that it’s boring and heading off to bed. I would then watch the entire thing simply because I have nothing better to do.

This year they supposedly removed all lip syncing. Even though I’m hesitant to believe in Chinese announcements, I’m inclined to believe this one, considering how horrible some of the singers sounded. Seriously, Jackie Chan can’t sing!

I didn’t really like this year’s Gala. Most of the skits were just lame. Either that or they were just so packed full of culturally specific jokes that I didn’t get them.

  3. If by celebrate you mean the usual giant family dinner, then yes.
