Guo Da Li (过大礼), is a Chinese betrothal ceremony which every Chinese couple goes through prior to their big day.
An auspicious date is picked for the exchange of promises and gifts that include a betrothal basket, 2 pairs of dragon and phoenix candles, a red packet bearing the bride price, pig trotters canned food, hard liquor, wedding cakes 喜饼, oranges, jewellery for the bride (四点金), double happiness (双喜) stickers, a red banner to hang over the door and others …(depending on the couple’s dialect groups)
In the olden days, there were no such thing as pig trotters canned food, roasted pigs were used. Modern society had replaced the roasted pig with the pig trotters canned food as it is easier to prepare. “healthier” and has a longer shelf life.
