初八Prayer Session

The 8th day of Lunar New Year, a day which all Hokkiens will pray to the Heavens. I don't know how the legends begins but all I know is that we are burning money every year.

The alter with offerings and paper gold ingots readied to be burn. Paper gold ingots waiting for the firestarter.
Money being burned. $$$ gone. Anyway, it is part of the Hokkiens culture to mark the Chinese New Year on the 8th day of the Lunar New Year.
