Since then, crispy rice can kangs until years later, the show for the kitchen master of filial piety! 

And in the twelfth month in the streets to sell them to write Spring Festival couplets and generations also highly ornamental, Spring Festival couplets are mostly scales of shiny big carp body fat children, sitting with a "more than" year after year, "prosperous", "world peace", "world peace" means.

The language of prayer, full of philosophic theory and enlightenment to the person, do not stick to, not rigid, deeply ZhongXiangQin's favour, also from time to time from street people stop to watch and comments, become a indispensable scenery, linger. 

The most traditional in the twelfth month was prepared with eight ingredients scrambled out of the eight treasure pickles, namely the food.
