On February 15th, the villagers killed pigs to sacrifice god, performing "Tu dan chi nghiep" or "Bach nghe khoi hai" – a comedy performance about people in intellectual circles, agriculture, industry and commerce. 
The most hallowed as well as subtle rite —“le mat". A muscular man holds the “no” (male genital), and a graceful woman holds the “nuong” (female genital). In the exciting cheers of audience “Linh tinh, tinh phoc”, the “no” hits the “nuong”. After three times of “Linh tinh, tinh phoc”, the ritual of “le mat” ends. These two are cheered and hallowed as they take the female genital and male genital respectively. The crowd of hundreds circle them and cheer with the "linh tinh, tinh phoc" phrase three times while the man puts the male genital model into the female genital model, highlighting the harmony of Yin and Yang. If they succeeded in all three times will bring prosperity and bumper crops to the villagers.
