|Cai Shen God of Wealth|
It's the day to welcome the God of Wealth. Jiaozi (dumplings) are often eaten on this day because they look like ancient Chinese gold ingots. Most people go back to work on this day, and the re-opening of businesses is often accompanied with firecrackers.
The lion dance will parade around the streets to the sound of drums and firecrackers. Stores will invite them to have a lion dance to bring prosperity to the business in the coming year, and reward the lion with a lai see.
