Second day in hometown.

(I'm wearing hideous but snug shoes and trousers.^^)

Today is Ci Zao(辞灶) according to the lunar calendar.Ci Zao means "taking leave of the Kitchen God".It can be celebrated on lunar Dec.23 or 24 but basically people just have to do the same thing--shooting off some firecrackers.I didn't take it seriously but saw some rural life.


Later in the afternoon,our folks took me and mom to visit my grandparents' grave to cherish the memory of the dead.Mom wept and I couldn't help shedding tears seeing her so sad.It was so emotional.
