Absolutely, spending time with family is tops. I was happy to spend last night with a local friend and her family. Eating, talking, eating, watching CCTV, eating some more. It was great. The fireworks last night were quite something as well. Definitely a memorable first CNY.
thanks @Philou, that helps! and thanks all for your responses. 新年好!
Hello, can someone please be so kind to let me know where and when Spring Festival festivities (parades, dances, etc) will happen? I'm having trouble finding any information and wish to participate as much as possible. Thank you! 新年快乐!!
