The Sixth Moon brings festivals surrounding the rainy season in the Middle Kingdom.

Overview Edit

This Moon Festival celebrates the traditional start of the rainy season and numerous prayers and celebrations are carried out to honor Lung Wang the Dragon King in hopes that he will bring the rains in sooner and aid the growth of the crops. In many places great effigies of Lung Wang, made of paper and cloth, are carried on the shoulders of a dozen or more celebrants through the streets. If the rains come late, the effigies are carried to the fields to show where the rains are needed and the Great Bell near Peking is rung as a summons. The hirayanu are given thanks for protecting the farmers' cattle and horses.
