The barking sound of the dog opened the door of the earth. Then we have four directions of east, south, west and north. On the third day, she created the fat pig, which is for the food supply. On the fourth day, she made the goat to worship the gods of heaven and to ask gods for auspicious luck. On the fifth day, she made the big strong ox. It can do the hardship job with the powerful energy. On the sixth day, she created the horse. It can run very fast and can become the transportation. On the seventh day, she tried for 70 times to create the human with some helps from other gods. She blew out a breath on the human, and human became intelligent. She let human in charge of the six animals. Therefore, January 31, 2020 is the birthday of the Human.

The goddess made many human using mud mixed by yellow soil and water. Also she taught human about the marriage; so human can reproduce themselves. Therefore, Nu-Wa is the mother of the earth and the God of Marriage.

Almost no Chinese celebrate on this day. Some people just eat pettitoes with angel hair noodle. The long noodle stands for longevity.
