For Westerners, today is Valentine's day. However, for the Chinese, today is also Lantern Festival (元宵節 Yuánxiāojié) on the lunar calendear. It is the last day of the Spring Festival (春節 Chūnjié), that is the Lunar New Year. On this day, people eat yuánxiāo - boiled glutinous balls with sweet stuffing or meat inside. Yuánxiāo is also known as 湯圓 tāngyuán, which literally means "soup round". It sounds similar to the word "團圓 tuányuán - reunion" in Chinese. It is a day where family members get together and have tāngyuán. Furthermore, it is the season of lantern carnivals! :)
