Yan Yat

The seventh day of the Chinese New Year is Yan Yat or Everybody’s Birthday. Legend has it that the Goddess Nüwa created human beings by molding them from clay. So on this day, everyone grows older by a year. Stuff of legends, but, the food you eat on this day is pretty good as crowds gather at sushi restaurants to Lo Hei or toss a raw fish salad with sour plum sauce for good luck.
