HAKUNA MATATA

2 notes

His name is Zao Wang Ye (灶王爷)
I was just introduced to this kitchen deity, and he really made an impression on me!
I love random cultural data!
This deity lingers in the kitchen, because it is the most important place in a chinese home (wise people).
Once Mr. Zao Wang Ye has installed himself in your kitchen, his work is to snoop around, all eyes and ears, and later on talk about your family’s behavior to the supreme Emperor deity . So at the end of each lunar calendar cycle, people will offer him sugar, rice and fruit so he will go back to heaven and report a sweet good impression on that family. Depending on the result of this annual evaluation the family will get plenty of either good or bad stuff.
