Pai Thnee Kong ( Jade Emperor’s Prayers ) at my Mother’s house

Tonight is the night when Chinese of Hokkien descent pray tothe Jade Emperor of the Heavens ie the 9th Day of the Chinese New Year – Sunday, February 5th 2017. It usually starts off around midnight of the 8th Day when offerings were arranged and laid on the prayers table. As legend went, the Hokkien County was invaded by barbarians during the beginning of Chinese New Year and they went into hiding in their sugar-cane fields. On the 9th Day of the CNY, they emerged safely from hiding when the barbarians went off. They prayed to the Jade Emperor for their safety and two complete sugar-cane were offered with leaves and roots as gratitude.
