Sending Off A Kid (送童子)
concern mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, brothers, sisters, in laws;
friends came to be and ask:
“Why is good Mary not married yet? She is
already 40+, she has good career etc.”
“Why is good old John still single? He has
almost everything in life…”
many reasons why a person remains single and unattached to date.
signs can be found from astrology or Feng Shui audit:
astrology, if the character of a lady is too strong, too dry or she is destined
to have no husband; then this lady will remain single. Likewise, if a man has
no fortune, then he also would not have a wife in this life.
Shui, if the front door of the house a person dwells in faces flying star 5 and
2, then this person is likely to remain single too as long as he/she stays in
there is a third aspect according Taoist’s view:
stays single over 30 years old may be due to his/her previous partner is still
attached to him/her. This may be due to the fact that this person’s relation
with his/her previous life partner was too good or too bad. So much so that the
soul of his/her partner followed this person to current life.”
In order to
end this relationship, a ritual called ‘sending off a kid’ need to be carried
out. The ‘kid’ here refers to the person who is still single. In Chinese
custom, anyone who is still single is known as a ‘kid’ even he/she is already
100 years old.
is not complicate but it needs to be carried out by a second person who may be
the person’s nephew or niece, ideally this person is younger than the bachelor.
After an auspicious date is selected, offerings items such as a paper manikin,
joss papers and a small paper boat or horse of some sort is burnt at the
nearest road junction or river.
If the item
is carried out correctly, then the bachelor would hear of good news in a
relative short time, some say 100 days or so. I supposed, any single and
attached persons may try this ritual if he/she has fate in it. After all, it
only cost a few dollars if he/she performs this ritual him/herself. Of course,
please don’t forget to give a red packet (money) to the person who is
performing the ritual for good omen.
