the deities have their AGM ~ 神仙都去开常年会议了

Chinese New Year Eve many years back. THE auntie was preparing to pray to the various deities.

me: mama, why must we pray to the deities on Chinese New Year ar??
auntie: orrrrrrh, coz its like the deities are going on a business trip to the heavens for their AGM with the Jade Emperor to report on their various progress.
me: then why must prepare so much food???
auntie: those companies with AGMs also prepare a lot of food to entertain their shareholders so that the shareholders would not raise some sensitive questions!! same lar!! must prepare food for the deities so that they would not raise sensitive issues about our households mahz…
me: …

多年前的除夕。大婶正在准备送神。

我:妈妈,为什么要送神?
大婶:哦,因为就好象天神出差上天庭开常年会议向玉帝汇报一年的事。
我:那为什么要准备那么多的食物??
大婶:那些公司开常年会议还不是用食物招呼股东,让他们不提一些敏感的问题嘛!!同样的道理!!我们也得应酬天神,让他们被提及一些敏感话题。。。
我:。。。
