Taiwan - Food

August 28, 2015

Smallrock sent this card to me from Taiwan and told me a lot about some of the customs in Taiwan.  It was very nice of her.  I would have liked to learn more about her though!

"Greetings from Taiwan!  Hi, my name is Smallrock and I live in Tainan City, it's the oldest city in Taiwan.  We have a special ritual during Lunar July 7 called "Do 16 Years." Parents would celebrate children's being 16 year-old and thank the blessing of Seven Star Goddess.  By this ritual, they can tell friends and family that the children are already adult and can get full pay (child labor got half pay a hundred years ago).  Happy Postcrossing

A very interesting transportation-related stamp.  I think I may have ridden on this train!
