The Nine Emperor Gods Festival is held every year for nine days from the first day to the 9th day of the 9th lunar month. The 3rd Day is the Deity Bei Dou's Birthday Celebration. This evening culminates with spiritual mediums blessing hot medicinal oil to sell later. They do this by "playing" with the hot oil. Mediums dip their hand in the hot oil then put it in their mouths and spewing it into the fire to ignite.
