This year, Chinese New Year is on Monday, January 26! It's going to be the year of the Ox.
To get ready for the festivities, let's talk about dumplings! Dumplings are usually made of dough filled with sweet or savory fillings. Some popular Chinese dumplings are wontons and potstickers. Dumplings are symbolic and have different meanings. Some represent fortune, good luck, and family bonding. Making dumplings can be a great activity to get everyone together in the kitchen.
