【Fa Pau Raffle】

The raffling of fa pau depicting Tin Hau is an indispensible part of the Shap Pat Heung Tin Hau festivities. Villagers believe that whoever wins the fa pau gains good fortune and protection in the coming year. In olden times, the fa pau were attached to rockets and fired into the air. Young men from different villages would fight to get the biggest chunks. Today, it is a more sedate affair, with a raffle held to decide which village takes home the wreaths. Amongst them, the Ding Choy Pau is especially sought after as it is believed the winning village will be blessed with good fortune (‘choy’) and fertility (‘ding’).
