One such celebration that is held during the Chinese New Year period is the Jie Cai Ceng tradition. This tradition refers to the grand welcome that the Gods of Wealth and Prosperity are given. Jie Cai Ceng falls on the 5th day of the Chinese New Year. It is believed that the gods will descend from the heavens on this day. To welcome their arrival on earth, fireworks are set off to symbolise the arrival of wealth and prosperity. It is mostly businessmen who celebrate this day, more than anyone else, for these gods are held in high regard for the wellbeing of their business.
