2 Sara Di Diego = "This ritual is "sending gods", in this instance this men are sending Zao Jun to go tell the Jade Emperor all the good deeds and sins their families did during the year.Work Cited:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_New_Year#Traditional_food"
3 Sara Di Diego = "Each year the Kitchen God's picture is hung up on a wall of the family's kitchen, in order to observe the family's activities.  Before sending the god, they make a thank you dinner for the Kitchen God with rice.  Some serve rice so the God will not be able to report the family's activities with his mouth full.  While others serve it as a bribe, and make sugar soup and brown sugar bars.After the dinner, the picture is burned and a new one is put up after the Lunar Year festivities.Work Cited:http://chineseculture.about.com/od/chinesefestivals/a/Chinese-New-Year-Kitchen-God.htm"
