A man stands in front of his fattened sacrificial pig as part of the Hakka Yimin Festival in Hsinchu
A man stands in front of his fattened sacrificial pig as part of the Hakka Yimin Festival in Hsinchu August 29, 2010. During the festival, believers worship ancestors who fought for the government against rebels during ancient times to protect their homeland. After their deaths, locals started sacrificing pigs as offerings during the annual Hungry Ghost festival to commemorate their bravery. The sacrifice preludes with a competition for the fattest pig in town and the family that offers the fattest pig is believed to receive a great blessing.
