It may seem like Dubai has only just had one grand celebration to usher in the beginning of 2013, but this week another culture celebrates its own new year, with the Chinese festival scheduled this year for Sunday February 10. Traditionally, Chinese new year festivities take place over a 15-day festival, filled with feasting with family and friends, traditional dishes and other eating rituals considered key to this time of year.
