年三十 in direct translation to english will be year 30 or a more proper translation will be year end. It is usually the last day of chinese lunar calendar before the Chinese new year. It is also the time that family from various place gather together in one root and have a reunion dinner. Too bad that this year 2 of my brother is overseas and wouldn’t be able to celebrate this dinner together as a family. Hopefully next year they will be able to come back for the chinese new year, I am pretty sure my dad and mum will love to see them for this special occasion.
