The Jade Emperor's Birthday
天公誕

Description

On the Jade Emperor's Birthday, Taoist temples hold a Jade Emperor Ritual at which priests and laymen prostrate themselves, burn incense and make food offerings.

To show the sincerity, many people take bath on the 8th lunar night, then wait for the first minute of 8th lunar day to begin the ceremony with their clean body. Yuk Wong Kung Tin (玉皇宮殿) also known as Yuk Wong Po Tin (玉皇寶殿) is a temple in A Kung Ngam, Hong Kong, dedicated to the Jade Emperor. The temple of Jade Emperor will be crowded as the Chinese New Year day since the night of 8th lunar day for those people unable to hold the worship event at home. For the same purpose, Chinese always pray for better luck, safety, health, love or money, when they visit the temple.
