In Chinese-speaking countries, people will eat thin noodles to celebrate their birthday.

The thin noodle is the symbol of longevity to elders, and we also think that to eat thin noodles can help us get rid of jinx.

Usually, when the birthday boy/girl eat it, she/he can not use chopsticks to cut it off no matter how long the thin noodles are.

The length of the thin noodles represents our lifetime.

As times went by, instead of eating traditional foods, Taiwanese youngsters turn to eat cake or go to karaoke bar on their birthday.

2012 is coming to an end, and the whole new 2013 is upcoming.

We will inevitably grow old, and I hope every body will have a wonderful new year.
