On the ninth and last day of the festival, which falls on 21st October this year, will see the firewalking and dipping hands into a cauldron of boiling oil. I will be going as I look forward to this every year. As a matter of fact, these ceremonies give me an adrenaline rush. I get a Qi rush by being in such Yang charged activities.
This is definitely not recommended for the faint hearted to witness.
