Rice Turtle

11 February 2017

This is a tradition on the 15th day of Chinese New Year – Yuan Xiao Jie, where Hokkiens mark the day with offerings of tortoises: Rice tortoise and steamed flour tortoises. Additionally, a giant rice turtle made up of 1,400 rice packets of 5kg rice was set up. Devotees asked Mazu for consent to bring home a pack of rice signifying a year of good returns.
