The food is being prepped, houses are being cleaned and decorations are being put up in households as we speak in preparation for Chinese New Year tomorrow. The festivities, however, begin today. In fact, the eve of Chinese New Year is significant because of the reunion dinners that take place, when family members near and far come home and share a meal together.
To get you further into the Chinese New Year mood, here are some catchy advertisements. (Warning: some may cause you to bawl your eyes out).

A reminder that family goes beyond blood ties and it’s the people you keep near.
Grandma’s love knows no bounds, so would you be able to take money from your grandma?
Simplicity and creativity can go a long way when the mind travels.
