When a villager builds or moves into a new house, the whole village turns out to sincerely help them rejoicing over it as over their own. It has been our peoples’ fixed way of life from earlier ages.

On the day of moving into a new house, people in the neighbourhood regarded it as courtesy to help remove household goods or bring some kind of presents needed for housekeeping like a match or a gourd dipper, and the host would serve them with simple food in return.

This fine custom shows the good manners of our people, who have regarded being friendly with neighbours as moral norms of life and have kept to it traditionally.
