The Ciba(a kind of sticky rice cake) symbolizes reunion and good luck in the new year. Langshan local people make Ciba before every China lunar new year.
Making Ciba is a collective activity which requires many people to cooperate. Normally a big family or several families combine to make Ciba together. The Ciba is round(in Chinese round is 圆), meaning reunion. So making Ciba itself represents reunion because all members of family come together, a lot of fun and happiness!
