TAITUNG COUNTY, Taiwan
(TraNews) – There are a lot of stories and tales of Lord Handan and the background of bombing Lord Handan can no longer be identifiable. It is sure that in Qing dynasty, a lot of regions in Taiwan has this tradition. However, only Taitung preserves the custom until now.

It is said that Lord Handan is a military officer in Shung dynasty. He was very afraid of chilliness; as a matter of fact, when he was on a tour of inspection, people threw firecrackers to make the weather warmer. People believe that Lord Handan is the God of Money and will give them bliss and wealth. The more firecrackers they throw, much money will they earn in the following year.

However, there are people believing that Lord Handan was the God of Bully. He used to be a bad person and bullied people in the local area. One day, he influenced and reformed by deity. He stood on the sedan chair and asked local residents to throw firecrackers on him until he died. Local residents later called him Lord Handan to memorize him.

There are diverse saying of Lord Handan, but those are all the tales that lead to the event of “bombing Lord Handan”. As for now, only Taitung region still preserves the precious custom.
