If you live in an area with a large Asian population, you already know that it's lunar new year today. As those who celebrate it know, the lunar new year is a *big* holiday, the celebration of which continues for a few weeks (well, technically 15 days, but why limit oneself?) with family dinners and parties. If you're unfamiliar with it but like to mark occasions or are always up for a celebration, try eating foods considered "lucky" on this day for good luck all year. Oranges and other citrus are considered lucky, because they are the color of gold (the great taste, in-season status, and wonderful aroma can't hurt either!). Long, unbroken noodles are lucky as are other foods, such as chicken or fish, cooked and brought to the table whole.
