Festival Starts, Guanxi Starts Selling Ducks As Per Tradition

Festival Starts, Guanxi Starts Selling Ducks As Per TraditionAugust 27th is the fourteenth month of the Chinese lunar calendar, the “ghost festival”, and the people have a custom of eating duck. On the road of Liuzhou city in Guangxi in the wee hours of the morning stores put ten thousand ducks on the road in order to sell them wholesale, covering over 100 miles of road with ducks. The duck’s squawking was unending, and the pungent odor of livestock was in the air. Some people feel that all of the customs of Guangxi are either eating ducks or killing dogs, and both are cruel, but netizens disagree and think that people should respect tradition.
