Jiaozi is said to be the “yua~ given by the God and it is believed that when one ushers in the God of Wealth and eats the jiaozi, fortune, happiness and wealth will come his way. On New Year’s Eve, every household wel- comes the God of Wealth in the direction pointed by the traditional almanac. At midnight, someone will announce outside, I have brought you the of Wealth!” At this, the woman of the house will reward the courier with a doubao (dumpling stuffed with sweetened bean paste). In return she will re ceive a slip of paper that augurs good fortune.
