As a tradition, many Buddhist temples provided free Laba porridge to citizens on Sunday, which happened to be the New Year's day and also China's traditional Laba Festival. Laba festival, literally the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month, is considered the prelude of Chinese Spring Festival. (Xinhua/Zhu Guigen)
