Welcoming The God of Wealth
We were told that on the night of fourth day of the first month of Chinese Lunar New Year there will be more fireworks and firecrackers lit up all over China especially close to midnight since every household is celebrating the birthday of The God of Wealth. Sure enough, it was loud and festive all night long, the sky was lit up with endless fireworks from every directions, my husband and I were watching through our windows in awe, it’s a beautiful sight indeed.
The God of Wealth is a Chinese deity who can bless one with luck, wealth and economic opportunities. Although worshipped throughout the year, he is especially popular during the Spring Festival when the community welcomes a new year and mark the start of a new social calendar.
On the morning of the fifth day, firecrackers are exploded as a sign of welcoming the God of Wealth.
My daughter and I went to the Lobby ground to witness the ceremony, it was LOUD and festive.
What a great way to start a day, we are all awake now 🙂
Also I noticed that the temperature has change slightly this morning, its crisp and fresh with a hint of spring, lovely.
