Locals offer fish fleet to gods

Update: February, 02/2016 - 10:21
(Clockwise) A volunteer calls on locals to refrain from leaving nylon bags behind when they release carps into lakes and rivers. People prepared farewell ceremonies for the Land Genie and Kitchen Gods yesterday. They also burned paper clothing, including hats, robes and boots, intended for use by the genies on the trip beyond. According to the legend, the Land Genie and Kitchen Gods ride carps to Heaven to deliver an annual report on the household's activities to the God of Heaven. After the ceremony ends, they often release the fish into lakes. — VNS Photos Doan Tung
