The Laba Festival, commonly known as "Laba", takes place on the eighth day of December in the lunar calendar.
December in the lunar calendar is also called the twelfth lunar month. The beginning of the twelfth lunar month means the countdown to the new year! The ancients had the tradition of offering sacrifices to ancestors and gods and praying for a good harvest. In some areas, there was a custom of drinking Laba porridge.
The Laba Festival has a long history in our country, and it first began in the Song Dynasty. Laba has the custom of eating Laba porridge on this day. Laba porridge is also called Qibao Wuwei porridge.
