What's it all about?

The Laba Festival comes from a traditional Chinese festival celebrated on the eighth day of the twelfth month of the lunar calendar. "La" means 12th lunar month and eight is pronounced as "ba" in Chinese. Therefore, it is named "Laba." Before the Qin dynasty the Laba festival was a celebration of the new harvest. After Buddhism spread to China during the first century CE, the festival was used as commemoration of Gautama Buddha's enlightenment at the age of 35.Traditionally, the consumption of Laba congee was an important element of the festival and the other custom is Laba Galic. We are going to bring all of these customs in Hatching Dragons to introduce you this Traditinal Festival.
