In order to receive the God of wealth in advance, most businessmen hold the ceremony of greeting God on the fourth night of junior middle school. They prepare fruit products, cakes and pig heads, the God of wealth flag and other sacrificial supplies, and invite God of wealth to drink.
At that time, the owner held incense candles and went to the five halls of the gods of wealth in the southeast, northwest, central and western regions to receive the God of wealth. After the five gods of wealth joined together, they hung up the paper horse of the God of wealth, lit incense candles, hung flags and worshipped by all, and then burned the paper horse of the God of wealth.
