Bringing the same value of 7000 yuan to burn pigs to worship the ancestors: I have had this habit since childhood

More than ten members of Mr. Huang’s family brought the same roast pig worth 7000 yuan to the mountain to worship. The roast pig was pushed up the mountain by three children together with a trolley. They said, "It’s good to go up the mountain." "Tough but all to do"; Mr. Huang said that every year the Spring and Autumn Festivals will be mountaineering to worship ancestors, and roast pigs will be prepared every time. He already had this habit when he was a child, and the task of "pushing pigs up the mountain" is now handed over to the next. In the first generation, Mr. Huang pointed out that money is not the most important thing. The most important thing is heart and filial piety, so he doesn't worry about money.

Because of the comfortable weather today, many citizens find it not too hard to hike up the mountain.

In previous years, the Chongyang cemetery was crowded with "like Mong Kok". This year there were fewer people.



Mr. Lai also went to the Chai Wan Chinese Permanent Cemetery today to worship the ancestors. He said that there were more people in the past and described it as "like Mong Kok." There are few people, and today’s weather is more comfortable, so walking up the mountain is not too hard.

As for the gathering restriction order, Mr. Lai said that there are only three people in his party, so it is not very relevant, but he has seen many groups of more than four people, but no one paid any attention.

As for sacrifices, it cost 56 yuan, which is not much different from previous years.
