The Ninth Day Of Chinese New Year

Well , this time posting is about another Big Day in Chinese New Year Calendar , the ninth day of the New Year , which is a day for Chinese to offer prayers to the Jade Emperor of Heaven (天宮) in the Taoist Pantheon. The ninth day is traditionally the birthday of the Jade Emperor. This day is especially important to Hokkiens . Come midnight of the eighth day of the new year, Hokkiens will offer thanks giving prayers to the Emperor of Heaven. Offerings will include sugarcane as it was the sugarcane that had protected the Hokkiens from certain extermination generations ago. Incense, tea, fruit, vegetarian food or roast pig, and paper gold is served as a customary protocol for paying respect to an honored person . This is the first time i celebrate Tien Gong Praying ... thanks to Yann Yann for inviting me ;)
