Chinese Sword Licking.. Yummy

Posted on November 20, 2006

During a local ceremony in Xiamen, China, a participant licks this sword during an ancient folk custom in Fujian and Taiwan Provinces. This is an act, along with burning a boat, that bids farewell to the king hoping to ensure a good harvest and national peace.
