Title: Chinese Festivals in Hong Kong
Author: Kenny C.L. Ip
Publisher: Greenhill Publication Company
Summary: Chinese Festivals in Hong Kong unravels the mystique of Chinese folklore. When Hong Kong was opened up after 1842, there were a large number of fishermen living in Hong Kong. Fishermen worked in the sea. They believed that the help of gods was necessary for safety and survival. This made some of the festivals full of superstitious features. Under over one hundred years of colonial rule, Hong Kong has eluded the atheism of Chinese communism. Thus, the rites and customs of popular festivals have been preserved up to now. Glimpses of traditional Chinese festivals, like the Mid-Automn Festival and the Dragon Boat Festival, together with local ones such as Cheung Chau Bun festival, the Birthday of Tin Hau and the Tai Chiu Festival will appear in this photo album.
