  The Spring Festival customs of Jinjiang

  The Spring Festival is the most lively festival for southern Fujian people in a year.From the first to the fifteenth day of the lunar month, are all in the "New Year". Only after fifteen, "Year" has passed. Jinjiang still retains many New Year's customs, let's take a look.

  Pasting spring couplets

  Before the Spring Festival, every family put up Spring Festival couplets,the couplets in red paper and ink pasted on the door of families in Jinjiang, to declare the happy life. "Although the time is ticking,but people will be more and more longevity; When the spring is coming,fortunes will be full of your family."demonstrates people’s good hope for the New Year! And the sugarcanes which are pasted with red paper are put on two sides of the door, implied of entering into the wonderful circumstance, and the sweet life.

  Steaming "Salty rice pudding"

  In Jinjiang, people have to steam"Salty rice pudding"in order to spend a good Spring Festival."Salty rice pudding" is also known as "Steamed Rice Sponge Cake". In the dialect of Southern Fujian, the more fermented the better,because "fa" has the meaning of rich and developed.Steaming "Salty rice pudding" has to ferment first, so "Salty rice pudding" signifies rich, developed to build up the family fortunes.

  Staying up late on New Year's Eve sitting around the fire

  On the New Year's Eve, the family surrounded together for family reunion meals, which is the common tradition of the Chinese people. In the southern Fujian area, the family gathered together to eat the dinner on New Year's Eve called "fireside".As there are many Jinjiang people went out overseas to make a living previously,coming back home to have the family reunion dinner, sharing the happiness of a family union, is the happiest thing for the whole family.

  After sitting around the fire, we love to sit together to chat, waiting for the arrival of the New Year, this process is commonly known as "staying-up late on New Year's Eve".
