Hanging meats and spicy pork sausages become more common to see in the wintertime. Sausage is a traditional food to eat during the Chinese New Year reunion dinner and some are prepared and left up to hang months in advance. For the special dinner, families get together to celebrate, usually at the most senior family member’s home. Many of the traditional dishes symbolize good things for the new year like good fortune and prosperity and are reserved for special occasions like this.
