Chinese New Year Day 8 - Birthday of Yen-Lo King
The Chinese Completion Day
2024 is the 4721rd Chinese year. 2024 Chinese New Year Day is on Saturday, February 10, 2024. Chinese New Year Day is a new moon day, which is the first lunar day. The 8th lunar day of Chinese New Year is Saturday, February 17, 2024. This Date is called the Completion Day, or Day of Land or Day of Corp.
The Chinese New Year holiday ends on the 5th lunar day for government and business companies. But some people take long days off until 8th lunar day. The Completion Day means people should return from the holiday vacation and go back to work. All the meat and cake prepared for Chinese New Year should finish on this day. Everything should back to normal.
The 8th lunar day of the first month is also the birthday of Yen-Lo King, who is 5th king of Legendary Hell in 5th palace.
The 5th palace of the hell is under the northern-east side of the big scorching and burning stone in the sea. The king of the 5th palace is Yen-Lo King. The palace has 64,000 square miles long. It contains 16 divisions of the small hells.
Yen-Lo King was in charge of the first palace of the hell. He sent the death people who died of injustice back to the human world to have a chance to clear up the false charge many times. Then he was demoted to the fifth palace of the hell.
According to Chinese genesis, the goddess Nu-Wa with snake body (2852-2738 B.C.) created chicken on the first day of the first lunar month, dog on the 2nd lunar day, pig on the 3rd lunar day, sheep on the 4th lunar day, ox on the 5th lunar day, horse on the 6th lunar day, and human on the 7th lunar day. She made human and six animals out of soil. She let land grow crops to feed human and animals on the 8th lunar day. She thanked land for the help of the creation. She declared the 8th day as the Day of Land or Day of Corp, which is February 17, 2024.
