Sugar melon is a traditional snack in the northern regions of China. There's a saying that “sugar melon is served on the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month.” According to a Chinese folk legend, on this day, the Kitchen God would report people's daily lives and deeds to the Jade Emperor in heaven. Therefore, people offer sticky and sweet sugar melon to the Kitchen God, hoping for his sweet reports to heaven and blessings for a peaceful new year. That’s why sugar melon is traditionally served on this day in China. It represents a prayer for a safe and sweet year ahead.
