Dong village’s collective feast, unique custom of Dong , Hunan
Villagers bring their homemade food by opening wine altars and take out with rice wine and since with liqueurs, and bubble wine. They bring their preserved dishes of fish and meat, cooked chicken, duck, pork, mutton and beef, with glutinous rice and Ciba, to welcome their guests. At the Beginning of the banquet, one elder holds up their cups to make toast for welcoming guests, and he declares the opening of the feast. Drinking custom of Dong’s wine has significant features of inviting guests drink several cups of wine in bamboo cup for one round by seven of eight hostesses all for one guest at a time, meaning that guests accept the hostility of Dong's toast. There is no chance of keeping sober, so getting drunk is also a kind of happiness.
