Throughout the Chinese Lunar New Year season, it is customary for Chinese hosts to offer guests an assortment of treats from a Tray of Togetherness (chuen-hop).  This is a circular or octagonal shaped tray filled with an assortment of symbolic foods such as preserved kumquats for prosperity, coconut for togetherness, longans to bring many sons, and red melon seeds for happiness.  So this tray is filled with food to provide a sweet beginning to the New Year.
