Bring the taste and tradition of Taiwan to your home this Lunar New Year. February 10, 2024 marks the beginning of the year of the Dragon, a year of power, strength, and transformation. Pineapple cakes are a symbol of Lunar New Year celebrations in Taiwan for several reasons:
Symbolism: Pineapple, called "ong lai" in Hokkien (a dialect spoken in Taiwan), sounds similar to the phrase "prosperity arrives." Therefore, consuming pineapple cakes during Lunar New Year is believed to bring good luck, wealth, and prosperity for the coming year.
Sweetness and Happiness: Pineapple cakes are sweet, symbolizing a wish for a sweet and joyful year ahead. They are often gifted to friends, family, and business associates as a gesture of goodwill and to foster positive relationships.
Traditional Treat: Over time, pineapple cakes have become deeply ingrained in the Taiwanese Lunar New Year tradition. They are commonly exchanged as gifts and are also served to guests during the festive season.
Cultural Significance: Lunar New Year in Taiwan is a time for family reunions and honoring cultural customs. Pineapple cakes, with their auspicious symbolism and delicious taste, have become an integral part of the festive celebrations.
