Gunbing Festival

Gunbing Festival
Date: 15th January (Lunar Calendar)
Place: Harbin, Mulan

The Gunbing Festival is a folk custom in Harbin. On the night of Yuan Xiao all the young and old gather together on the frozen river and put candles on the frozen river and then roll around on the ice. It is believed that by doing so you can “roll” all trouble and bad luck away and “roll” in the good luck. The festival stems from an old folk legend.
