The Guangzhou city government hosted an exhibition in the Guangzhou Museum of Revolutionary History from January 15 to January 25 to give the public a better understanding of Hakka culture. The exhibition featured more than 150 antiques borrowed from the Shixing History Museum in Shaoguan , northern Guangdong province. They included a wooden sedan chair, traditional clothes, embroidery, tools and china used by Hakka people. The highlight of the exhibition was a traditional Hakka wedding ceremony, which showed how in the old days the groom's family presented pigs, fish, chicken and wine to the bride's family on the day before marriage. In the exhibition, the bride's dowry included 24 camphor-wood chests, two wardrobes, a shelf, a dressing box, a barrel and a basin. All the chests were filled with clothes and bedding. In a traditional Hakka wedding, the groom fetched the bride in a sedan chair to take her to the wedding, accompanied by a live percussion band beating drums and striking gongs. After the wedding feast, relatives would play tricks on the newlyweds before sending them into their room. The bride's parents would come to visit her the next day, and 10 days after the wedding the bride would go back to see her parents. Many Hakka women make embroidery, and the exhibition was filled with beautiful examples. Another unique tradition of Hakka people is their rectangular wooden pillows in which they store valuables such as jewellery.
