On the eve of the Chinese New Year, it's customary to plan a reunion dinner with extended families gathering under one roof for a multicourse celebratory meal. If you've just spent Christmas getting the details of Aunt Laura's political awakening and trying to escape the wail of Cousin Timmy's new fire truck toy, this idea might cause you to break out into hives.
