Chinese New year celebrating Jade Emperor’s birthday also known in Hokkien as Pai ti Kong.
This is the most important day for the Hokkiens during the lunar new year celebrations and it is one of my favourite festivals.
Traditionally a feast is laid out on the altar table for the Jade emperor to thank him for his protection and blessings. Offerings like gold paper are burnt to send to heaven and fireworks and firecrackers are set off at midnight.

The perfect place is being within the authenticity of the celebration. You being there, has to be a beautiful cultural feel as well. ❤

I had to look up the Jade Emperor story. 🙂
I like your green silk garment. Fits you well.
Looks like the magic dress of the Emperor’s daughter Zhinü.

Good video, I enjoyed seeing it. I didn’t know about the burning of the bonfire. I’m not Hokkien but many people in Taiwan are, so I guess they might have a similar custom.
