From Cooking Light. The Chinese New Year is reportedly the most important holiday in China. Food plays an integral role in the celebration. Chicken stands for prosperity and joy; dumplings represent togetherness and heavenly blessings. Pork and beef symbolize wealth and strength. Noodles stand for a long, happy life and shrimp represents happiness and good fortune. For this recipe, use the longest noodles you can find; the length represents a wish for a long and happy life.
