A slow heart beat distant away in Eshan area they celebrate Kaixinjie during Lunar new year. I made it to Tadian this year for the festival. In tradition...local traders and merchants wouldn't start their business before the dragons and parade roaming through the street in town trailing with blasting fire cracker. Well...in this commercial economic, some shops even service through new year. Nowaday Kaixinjia became a symbol for new economy for tourism(if it really work!), as they had created a God of Drum, and present a ceremony to worship it. because the drum dance is one of the activity they can do best and very proud of, so...it is very reasonable and logical for the Chinese to came up with the idea of a God of Drum as their ancestor, otherwise...how could they be that good in drum dancing, right?! they claimed there were more than 200 drum dance team in the township, and the highlight for the day was the drum dance competition.
