Earlier today the God of Wealth made an appearance in Nanjing, in a rickshaw pulled by the Monkey King himself, with a basket of hong bao for the adoring crowd.
Today is the fifth day of the Chinese New Year, celebrated as the birthday of the God of Wealth with a feast the night before and fireworks in the morning. Typically, you’re not supposed to leave your house during the day, just in case the God happens to show up, but we assume it’s ok when he’s outside on the street making it rain hong bao from the back of a dinosaur.
Yeah.. about that dinosaur. We have no clue, our ancient Chinese folklore is a little rusty.
Gōngxǐ fācái, everybody.
