Chuxi, or the New Year's Eve, is the last day of the Chinese Lunar New Year. Traditionally, on the night of the day, all families will have the reunion dinner, set off firecrackers and stay up late. The Spring Festival Couplets with good wishes are pasted on the doors to represent the beginning of The Spring Festival.
At the family reunion dinner people eat dumplings representing prosperity and noodles representing longevity. Fish are also presented at the dinner, since the character 鱼 (fish) is pronounced as Yu in Chinese, meaning wealth and abundance.
Family members usually stay up late at night and pray for blessings for the coming year.
